MLB tweaks ruling on force plays at home plate
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Devin Mesoraco is changing the MLB rule book.
Today it was announced that the rule 7.13 about blocking home plate is being changed. It is now not to be applied to force plays at home.
This stemmed from a play in the Reds-Pirates game last week where Mesoraco was called safe because Pirates catcher Russell Martin was blocking the plate on a force play.
