Rules ! Rules ! Rules

Recommended Posts

 Not an umpire , anymore...
   So I decided to get a copy of the "rulebook"
    "2019 Official Rules Major League Baseball" by Triumph Books LLC.
    I think they used the smallest font they could get their hands on!!
   Need a magnifying glass to read it.
   and by the way   boring as hell

"Much easier to read . . . online."

This is a matter of opinion. Searching for a specific term or word, yes; reading and browsing broadly, no. I am very old-fashioned about some things: I can't easily read books or magazines--or rule books--on-line.

I can't recommend reading or browsing a rule book at all, any more than a dictionary or encyclopedia. It's a reference work.

Yes, the rule book is a reference, but when trying to find an answer, which often entails juxtaposing several rules, I find it easier to leaf through the hard copy. YMMV. My comment about reading books and journals was simply to illustrate my old-fashioned preference--and I don't posit it as universal truth. YMMV.

Considering the pandemic circumstances, the closest we may come to actually umpiring this year is browsing through the rules. And posting in Umpire-Empire.
