I like the 4 men in the infield rule, hate the stepping off the rubber limit.

Defense should be able to play their guys where they want. Obviously the automated strike zone is great. 15 sec pitch clock doesnt matter much to me. The step off rule I like. Makes it more of a cat and mouse. 3 per AB could work too. 3 isnt that bad.

The article denotes 4 men with both feet on the infield dirt. When can a third baseman charge towards home on a bunt?

Also, are there mandates on how big the infield dirt can be? You can tell the running lanes of the infield vary in sizes in different places. Is there something stopping a team from adding 20 feet of infield dirt?

I’ll take almost whatever dumb rules they want to add if it gets us to robot strike zones!
