Home Plate Collisions Have Been Banned In MLB

According to Bob Nightengale on Twitter a Joe Torre and Sandy Alderson led MLB Rules Committee have ruled that home plate collisions are no longer allowed in Major League Baseball. MLB has gone as far as to say there will be fines, suspensions, and penalties for home plate collisions in 2014, sounds like MLB is getting serious about this. The players and their union must approve of the deal for it go into affect for the 2014 season and if that does not happen it will be 2015 before the rule is officially in play. I cannot see a situation where the players do not approve the deal though so expect this to be in place by the beginning of the season.
