Baseball’s Unwritten Rules, Texas Tech Graduation, and Big 12 Baseball Tournament – 019

The unwritten rules in baseball are discussed after watching Kody Clemens break them in a win over TCU this past weekend. Here are our top 10:

  1. Don’t talk to a pitcher about a no-hitter in progress
  2. Don’t steal or bunt when game is out of hand (4+ runs either way)
  3. Don’t “pimp” (admire) a homerun (look at, bat flip, celebrate around bases, etc.)
  4. Don’t show up the umpire or teammates
  5. Don’t stare down a batter after a strikeout
  6. Don’t step on the pitcher’s mound
  7. Don’t bunt to break up a no hitter
  8. Don’t run up the score in a blowout
  9. Don’t slide hard into second with your cleats up
  10. (DO) Hit batters in retribution
