Unofficial Rules of Baseball May Cloud Player’s Judgments or Motivate Them
Unofficial Rules of Baseball: Positive or Negative?
In the game of baseball, just like any other sport, there are official rules and unofficial rules. When someone violates and unofficial rules, it’s looked at as the ultimate betrayal. For instance, if you rat on a former teammate, you’re wrong. If you hit someone with a pitch unintentionally, you’re wrong. So many situations can end in a downward spiral unless you just play the game and let the statistics show the real winner. Some unofficial rules are good to follow, some others athletes should stay clear of. As a requirement of the unofficial rules of baseball, no matter what beef you have with a manager or player, you should never let it show. No matter what inside information you have about a player’s techniques or manager’s tactics, you should never share it. If you do, you’ll be violating the unofficial rules of baseball. Nothing good comes of that!
