The Toronto Blue Days return home to open their 40th season tonight at the Rogers centre. They will face the Red Sox in front of a sold out crowd!
How big of a baseball fan are you? Do you know the game inside and out?
Baseball rules you may not know about:
1. Technically, players on opposing teams can’t hang out on the field together once they’re in uniform.
2. A right-handed pitcher cannot switch in the middle of an at-bat and start throwing left-handed.
3. When a coach visits the mound to talk to the pitcher, there’s a 30-second time limit. This is a new rule they just added to speed up the game…
4. There are 23 different ways a player can end up on first base, including a hit, a walk, an error, a fielder’s choice, catcher interference, and getting hit by a pitch. 5.
5. If you catch a ball with your hat, the runner automatically goes to third. The rule applies if you use any part of your uniform to catch the ball, other than your glove.
