2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)(whispering) If you ban it...... They will hit .... Or maybe sac bunt.... Or at least poorly wear warmup jackets on the field. I mean jeeze, what other sport allows players in the game to wear warmup jackets on the field!?! Bob Walk's career highlight is his lone HR. Just ask him. You want to take away Bob's homer? Boooooo the DH!
