Re: The 2015 New York Baseball Thread
Hook1, whenever I need some comical relief I take you off my disregard list and see what you are babbling about.
The 3' wide path (not base line) to first base is there because you are allowed to overrun the base.
The base line is there because you are not allowed to interfere in fair or foul territory outside the path with a throw to first base.
You don't see them painting a base "path" anywhere else on the field last time I looked.
