MLB players break this rule frequently — you may be guilty, too

(NEXSTAR) — Baseball: It’s America’s favorite pastime (though some argue it’s no longer “America’s sport”). The game itself has seen countless changes since it first began in the 1800s, especially when it comes to the rules. Take, for example, the pitch clock and the larger bases Major League Baseball has introduced in recent years.

There are some rules, however, that seem to be frequently overlooked and broken in every game. None may be more true to that than Rule 4.06. 

Players break this rule nearly every game. They break it with each other, they break it with fans. As a spectator, you may even have contributed to the violation of Rule 4.06. 

Here’s a look at Baltimore Orioles infielder and MLB’s top prospect Jackson Holliday violating the rule at one of his first games in The Show.
