10:30 pacific is a ocean did you mean specific
@Sub if you are against antifa and BLM I love antifa
Trump lost lol
Any rule that discourages men from dressing as women is a good rule for damn sure.
Thank you. How ironic would it be if an umpire saw this video.
I remember a 2021 Extra inning game between the Red Sox & the White Sox; one of only a few interconference games played that season.
With the game 0-0; they activated a rare rule allowing them to swap the designated hitters to be on base. It was one of only two cases the rule would ever have a chance to be applied; prior to its abolishment in 2022.
That last rule is an insult. One of my favorite little things about baseball is seeing opposing players laugh it up and enjoy the sport. It gives the game a comfy backyard vibe.
Do you know what is even a worse look for MLB? Telling fans that Votto giving a kid with cancer a bat and autograph is against the rules.
@Cameron Montgomeryehh the malice at the palace was a little more than just talk Ron artest had a beer throw at him causing the incident but I get what your saying
Yeah it’s stupid
There's the camp of people who HATE fun, it's a war out there, be serious and act like you've done it before.
No, it's a fun kids game, play to win, but don't suck the joy out of it.
Shows good sportsmanship to cut up with each other and fans.
This channel is the reason why I got back into baseball. Thank you
@Billy Daniel I still think baseball is more fun to play than football, but I agree it's not very entartaining to watch. mlb needs change if they want to survive
And it also makes me glad i'm a hockey fan and don't like baseball
That closing clip with Ozzie Albies shows what's right about baseball today. Albies is an extraordinarily good player, butt more importantly he almost always demonstrates just how fun the game is!
@David Snellen Y'know, when I was just a kid I **WAS** a Reds fan, because I thought Pete Rose and Johnny Bench were so amazing. I remember watching Joe Morgan at bat, with his elbow pumps as the pitcher delivered the ball. I agree that I'd rather watch Phillips.
I say let's put together an all-time team based on the fun meter. Albies, Phillips, the late Jose Fernandez, Freddie Freeman, Adrian Beltre and Miguel Cabrera lead my list. Who's on yours?
@Arinerm I always described him as watching poetry unfold on a baseball field.
As a Reds fan, I got to watch him all the time. At least once a week on TV. Unbelievable infielder.
My all time Reds team would have him at second rather than Joe Morgan.
(Let the hate posts start.... Lol)
@David Snellen YES! Phillips was also an amazing middle infielder, and he was with the Braves just before Albies came up as a rookie. I've thought highly of him since his days with the Reds, even though I'm not a Cincy fan.
Brandon Phillips is like that, too. He bought the minor league team in my town and plays (or at least he did last year). He's so fun to watch up close! We can get three front row seats behind the batter for the cost of one half-way decent seat at GABP.
And it helps that the players that are from the Dutch Caribbean speak 4 languages (Dutch / Papiamento/ English / Spanish)
Man if they enforced the fraternizing rule, Miguel Cabrera would be done lmao. Love that guy.
@Troy its real hard to hate the guy
Basically all the latino guys would be done and every 1B.
Same with Beltre
I know lmao
Bobby Valentine in a disguise is always gonna be the funniest mlb moment to me. I don't even like him all that much, but that shit is hilarious to see every time.
he's done some shit in his career thats for sure
The automatic triple Was very close to happening last year in a bluejays Redsox game back in late June where Manoah threw his glove out of frustration
If you want to know more about Eddie Gaedel, give me a shout. He was my Grandpa's brother. He dropped the last E from his name because he didn't like people saying it wrong. I'm one of a few Gaedeles out there. A few years ago St. Louis brought me and some family members out to Busch Stadium and honored Eddie's legacy (small as it is, pun intended) by bringing us out on the field and giving away Eddie bobbleheads.
(Angel Hernandez gets hit by a Baseball)
Angel Hernandez: STRIKE!
@Zraknul Meanwhile, the fans: Make a statue of that player!
Eject the player!
More like, Angel: Automatic team forfeit!
Yet another masterpiece. As a former lifelong fan of the MLB. This channel has single-handedly brought me back to The Show.
Regarding the banter rule. I loved watching Felix Hernandez and Adrian Beltre go at it.
you could tell they had fun bending that rule
Big fan of the channel and the way you tell the hidden stories in baseball! I remember doing a paper in college on the various ways players have bent the rules across baseball’s history, so it’s great to see you cover the other end by noting how silly those rules can be sometimes.
Just as one small note, while this video was a fun change of pace, I do hope you still keep using the intro format (and music) that you’ve used before, since that always set the mood in an awesome way. Even better if you can bring back the beat drop you used to do at the end of the intros, that was always a highlight for me! 😊
I absolutely love the game of baseball and your channel has increased that thank you so much ❤
You always put out quality videos. One of my favorite channels, baseball or otherwise. Keep up the great work.
I love the banter between players. I hope they don't ever enforce that rule.
You're one of my favorite youtubers. This and all your productions are so well researched and well made.
That last rule is so bogus. As a huge hockey fan, a big part of it that I love is that these big, tough strong athletes often play around and have fun with each other during down time, plus, seeing any athlete give a young fan a piece of game used memorobilia or even just a head scratch is always heartwarming. These are things that humanize these athletes
I've been watching youtube for the better part of 13 years and this channel has to my favorite of all time. I don't know what it is exactly but I love your videos man! Keep up the amazing work, it is much appreciated by the fans!
Yeah I don’t even watch baseball, and love this channel. Dudes writing is so good along with research and presentation + editing!
Incredible content. This is the stuff I enjoy about this channel. So many silly rules and funny stories especially the last one.
Baseball is unreal.
You forgot one important part of Gaedel's at bat. He was told there was a sniper on the roof of the stadium that'd take him out if he swung the bat. And he believed it.
13:05 is actually the first time this happened in baseball history on a pitched ball. Due to their being no official rule on using detached equipment on a pitched ball, umpiring crew chief Harry Wendelstedt ruled that based on common sense and fair play, each runner should be awarded one base. The rule was amended to the OBR the following season. Base awards for that particular rule are: three bases on a batted ball, two bases on a thrown ball, and now, thanks to this particular instance, one base on a pitched ball
The one thing you can’t forget about Eddie Gaedel: he was told not to swing and if he did that a sniper in the stands would shoot him. Thank you Ken Burns’ Baseball for that tidbit.
@SacredLiquid it really does. still sad though that the league did Gaedel dirty
@matt alan baseball has a wild history.
@SacredLiquid that is sad. whats even sadder is Bob Cain was the only player to show up at his funeral. it was like the rest of the legue didnt respect him at all despite his 1 day career.
@matt alanRead Gaedel's Wikipedia after hearing about him for the first time. His manager thought he might try to swing at one. "When Veeck got the impression that Gaedel might be tempted to swing at a pitch, the owner warned Gaedel that he had taken out a $1 million insurance policy on his life, and that he would be standing on the roof of the stadium with a rifle prepared to kill Gaedel if he even looked like he was going to swing." Lmao
Also, the poor guy got beat to death at the age of 36. (Apparently had a heart attack that couldn't have helped)
wait really? that was really said?
I don't even really like baseball, but these videos are incredible! Keep up the good work
You have secured my subscription forever. I commented on an earlier video about the terminology used for people with dwarfism - and I really appreciate you listening and changing! A lot of folks do not take the time and it is appreciated.
Dude, your videos are insanely good!! I learn so much from you dude!!! Keep it up
One of my new favorite videos!! Keep up the amazing work!! ♥️⚾️
That ambidextrous issue should just go to home field advantage.
I'd say to pitcher because of how insane it is to get BOTH arms to the level of a mlb caliber pitcher.
Should just be the batter has to choose. It is such a rare phenomenon that it makes no sense to punish the pitcher instead of the batter.
That would be a great rule. It would fit with hockey's face-off rules, where the visiting team member must put his stick down first, except on face-offs in the home team's defensive zone, where the home team member must engage first. I really like watching how this plays out in hockey games.
I love David price now. He's a gamer, and he got the wrist to prove it
I heard the no fraternization rule was originated from the American civil war where teams didn’t want players talking to the other team that was most likely against their side
Players weren't aware of the rule that allows them to stay at the game, ( in street clothes, in the stands)after being ejected? I bought the rule book to read more about catcher indifference. But the ejected player rule has stuck in mind for decades. I had no idea there were so many interesting, unique rules. Baseball is beautiful and anybody who says it's boring knows nothing about the game.
Dude, I love your videos so much. I check your channel every single day hoping you uploaded a new one. Even though I know you only post 1-2 a month. I check anyways thinking I might get lucky. Hahaha! Keep it up dude. You have a subscriber for life right here…
You forgot the two dumbest rules though: ghost runner on 2nd in extra innings and banning the shift!
@James Martin Or just lay a bunt down the 3rd base line, singles for days or they'll stop shifting on you. But the bunt is a dying art in baseball.
@Aiden Awe yes
@Aiden Awe I do.
Na the dumbest rule is the ban on a salary floor 😂 Joke league
Yes! This! Why are we giving teams lead-off doubles in extra innings? Three fly ball outs turns into a run.
The shift would go away if players could just learn how to bunt. A good bunter could hit .400 against the shift LOL
The Anthony Rizzo hand sanitizer clip with Orlanda Arcia should have been used in the last clip. Or Freddie Freeman knocking the ball out of Asdrubal Cabrera's hand clip. Those are classics that we all love.
Solid ass vid.
I love this channel, the videos are so entertaining!!! Keep it up!
Between things like the Chicken and Beer scandal and players' Fortnite addictions, it's weird how the Red Sox somehow keep winning championships when their clubhouse culture is so often in disarray. Imagine a timeline where that stuff didn't happen. How many more rings they'd have in the last 20 years.
"In 2019, the Red Sox were TERRIBLE"... as the graphic shows a winning record that I would be ecstatic for my team to have...
I’ve never watched a game of baseball in my life, don’t intend to either, but I love this guys videos! Great content even though I don’t understand what he’s saying half the time 🤣
Joey you need to do a video on Dallas Braden and trolling him about it! Kinda like how you trolled all the A's fan with the video about Moneyball ruining the A's lol.
If only I could have a video from you everyday. Lol 😄 Also these rules really are stupid.
I can't get enough of this guy pronouncing the word "but."
man. that 2017 world series reference made me die inside, i almost forgot about that play
Tony Mullane was one of the top pitchers in baseball in the 1880s-90s and was very famous for switch-pitching.
Great video! You should do one on Rick Ankeil.
Can’t wait to see all the weird things teams come up with after watching this video
I play warzone with a pitcher on the red Sox. Can confirm they're all about the gamer boy life haha
How is that possible? I didn't know that was common...
I learn lots of stuff about the sport and the players cause of you
Is there still the rule where the game has to be suspended and finished the next day if it goes beyond a certain hour (I believe it was 1AM local time, but not positive). I feel like I haven't seen that scenario happen in a long time.
This is literally my favorite channel I can’t wait for everytime this man posts a new video good shit dude
Didn't Greg Harris (Redsox) have a 6 finger glove because he could pitch with either hand? I am not sure he ever did but I am pretty sure it was a thing.
I'm convinced that if someone read all the rules they could get away with a lot lol
I’m not a big baseball guy so I’m not sure how this would work in actuality, but I feel like the play should continue regardless of where the ump is when he gets hit. In basketball the ref is considered part of the court whether or not he’s inbounds. I feel like a similar thought process could work in baseball too.
awesome video. i'm new to baseball and i've been enjoying your channel
that ichro girl has an update.. her name is iris skinner and she threw the first pitch of a game last year.. also she appeared on the mariners youtube channel for an interview
When I had a chance to play in Cooperstown as a kid, a teammate bombed a grand slam but the opposing team said he missed first base. The umps caved and awarded us only 3 runs while ruling the batter out. Didn’t stop us from mercy ruling them ⚾️
Eat your hearts our Padres fans, Holiday was safe without having to touch home in 2007!! 😂😂
You gotta love how the ump solved the switch-pitcher problem: by ruling in favor of the Yankee 🙄
Please make a Roy Holliday video. I feel he is extremely underrated and his career deserves to be heard
Thanks for another great video! Seriously. some of these rules are head-scratchers.
Especially the milk and not touching home rules
Being able to pitch with either arm has to be an amazing advantage…I mean you always hear about pitchers throwing to much when they are young and ruining their arm
Just read Justin Miller (the pitcher with the tattoos) died at age 35. Rest in peace, fella.
@Bread And Circuses I only know about his death cause I looked up his name after watching this video. According to Wikipedia no information has been given.
But 35... man, he died too young. He left a wife and his two sons. I'm sorry for them, but at least due to this video we learn about him!
@Bread And Circusesno info about that has been out.
How did he die?
Mad respect here, man. The amount of research required for this combined with the sheer volume of assets you pull together is super impressive.
Greg A. Harris was the first ambidextrous pitcher in 1995, his glove is in the Hall of fame.
Tony Mullane in the 1880s was also an ambidextrous pitcher.
Other two that come to mind (both happen to be with the Yankees) are the Yankees facial hair/head hair length rule, as well as the players can't travel to away games with golf clubs.
Your research is awesome. Never seen a guys where helmet backwards in an in bat
The Vendetti rule makes perfect sense.
Eddie Gaedel’s nephew later played minor league ball in the Padres organization if I’m remembering correctly.
The players were cracking those 90s
About your ejection loophole i NEED to mention that it has happened in other sports, as in the last leg of the 2018 libertadores final river plate's manager Marcelo Gallardo managed the game on the club president's seat with a walkie talkie after he had been suspended for 2 games, and went on to become the champions, so someone shouls try it
Seeing the clip of Simon Birch awakened a memory long left dormant
On the "automatic triple," the batter-runner may advance to home at his own risk.
That was an abrupt ending. Awesome video though!
I can’t wait for baseball season. Go Giants!
In my ten u little league playoffs I was wairing a camo arm sleeve for the whole season and the ump would not let me where it in any playoff games and we ended up losing that season but walked off that game
I love this guy the flow of his video is perfect
Is the rule of a pitcher not being able to spit while engaged on the rubber or on the mound still on the books?
Carrabis making his BDE premier, amazing
13:52. I find it hilarious that Bobby Valentine just had a random fake mustache handy.
That picture of torre and willie Randolph 😂😂😂
Favorite baseball channel, hands down
I'm a big Mets fan. The day after the season ends I get a sad, hollow feeling every year. I think "what the hell am I going to do now". Having said that, I'd happily have the Mets go 0-162 and score 0 runs all season if it meant every ball in play hit Angel Hernandez.
I have those PF FlyersxNew Balance cleats. They’re super comfortable
0:33 This makes sense to me otherwise the player would just grab the ball and hit the umpire all the time
15:00 Touching Home was however required by Matt Holiday in which he never did back in 2007.
Fun fact, you can throw your equipment at a foul ball
0:18 yet Jose Altuve is thriving, you love to see it
Rob Manfried being allowed as a MLB employee is quite a dumb rule
Bud Selig was incredibly ignorant of the game, also.
Thank you. Every time I go on Clip-Share and see you uploaded a new vid i run down stairs to tell my dad that you upload we watch it almost always as soon I see it.
MLB needs to hire BDE, they need all the help they can get.
They were cheering for the ball to hit Angel because it helped the home team out... not because they hated Angel
Loved this video! So many dumb rules LOL and why is Joe Torre trying to make baseball "more boring" for the casual fan by trying to implement that last rule in the video? lol
I don't think anybody can do the gallon of milk challenge. Our stomachs can't hold 128 ounces of anything. It's amazing that Jeff Conine would finish 72 ounce steaks.
You can’t snap one off in between innings 😂
Update about the ichiro girl at 19:19 when ichiro hot inducted into the mariners HOF she threw out the first pitch to ichiro
Fred Merkle would’ve killed for Chambliss rule to be around in 1908. Talk about a great video idea
I like the part when he said "did you know?"
now it makes sense why Kyler Murray didn’t go to the MLB
Love these videos!
Great videos as always
Single handedly just killed like 4 video ideas I had in the barrel xD Touché
My day sucked till this came out 😊
