Moment in PSL: Sandy Alderson teaching catchers new rules

Rob Brender avatarRobert Brender, MetsBlog:

Sandy Alderson and Bob Geren are working with the catchers to go over the new rules on plays at the plate. Alderson met with Joe Torre, now the Executive Vice President for Baseball Operations for Major League Baseball, on Thursday to discuss the new rules, which look to eliminate home-plate collisions and avoid concussions for catchers.

The GM, coach and catchers were discussing using the swipe tag and their change of positioning around the plate, as players sliding into home cannot initiate contact and must slide. This is the second time this week catchers worked on the new rules going into place this season.
