Major Managers Blast Proposed Rule Change
I couldn't read it off the image on the Times website, so I pulled it up on my computer using my magical librarian tricks. The rule change, proposed by AL President Will Harridge upon the advice of Lew Fonseca, would have allowed a team to have a player re-enter a game (unless he was ejected or removed for some other rules infraction) after sitting out one complete inning.
Casey Stengel's quote: "There's nothing wrong with the way the game is played. All baseball needs is more good ballplayers. If they want to make a change, why don't they outlaw the curve ball. That would make everyone happier."
The mind reels at the length of a Cardinals game if Tony La Russa were allowed to take out and bring back players like it was a Little League game.
