Of things baseball needs to ban, beer in the clubhouse isn't first on the list

  • Ban maple bats until there’s a shatter-proof solution
  • Ban pitchers and hitters from walking around the plate/mound for interminably long time
  • Ban the umpire’s warning pitchers for merely throwing inside
  • Ban mound visits by ballplayers/catchers after the second visit
  • Ban the 4-pitch intentional walk. Just have the catcher signal to the ump and give the guy the base
  • Ban playoff games starting after 8pm EST
  • Ban pink hats, or green hats. Or red hats if your team’s colors aren’t red. Or hats that cost $59.95 and are now outdated.
  • Ban restrictions that prohibits fans from moving to better seats after the fifth inning
  • Ban non-retractible roofed stadiums
  • Ban the WBC
  • Ban the use of the ancient recording of Kate Smith singing the National Anthem; update that, will ya?
  • Ban that insipid PC Richard whistle after every K

What else would you like to ban from baseball?
