Unwritten Rules in Baseball
By Christopher M. Hall
Baseball is a glorious game. It has history, pageantry, and beauty that no other sport has. And in the 100+ years that baseball has existed, unwritten rules have been created that the game is played around. Breaking these rules won't necessarily cause an out or affect the scoreboard, but they sure will cause you to lose respect from not only opposing teams, but members on your team as well.
Here are a couple of examples of baseball's unwritten rules.
1. Don't steal bases when you are leading by a wide margin. What is a wide margin? There is no concrete definition, but usually both teams know when that margin has been reached. As Davey Lopes once said about stealing bases in a lop-sided game, "You don't stop competing; what you stop doing is manufacturing runs."
2. Always run onto the field to support your teammates when a fight breaks out. Have you ever seen anything more pathetic than a wannabe-fight in baseball? These two guys start going at it. Then here comes the fielders running to the mound. Then everyone in the dugouts. Finally, several seconds later, the bullpen pitchers streaming in. And most of these people are just barely jogging. It is pathetic and rather childish.
You can tell by the way that everyone is lollygagging out there that they know nothing is going to happen. They are just fulfilling the unwritten rule that they had better be out on the field in support of their teammates during a fight.
