Hello and happy Saturday.
The 2020 MLB season was weird, which every San Francisco Giants fan can attest to. But while lots changed — a shorter, odder schedule, expanded rosters and postseason, a lack of fans, and much more — what most stood out were the in-game rule changes.
There were three:
- A designated hitter in the National League
- Seven-inning games for doubleheaders
- An automatic runner on second base for extra innings
During the week, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred expressed some desire to have the rules stay for 2021.
