pitcher safety
hey how about allowing the batter to foul off 2 strike pitches till he gets the one he can pull so he won't hit it at the pitcher.

Great idea as with two strikes you usually go middle

That would make the game go on forever; as it did prior to senior ball many years ago. A batter would keep fouling off balls until he got one he liked. a good idea in theory, but I respectfully disagree.

you guys are right that it would take fore ever to play,but maybe the ones who feel the need to hit middle when hrs are gone would attempt to pull instead of trying to injure a pitcher.

I don't know of a single person who tries to injure a pitcher.

Unlimited fouls is how we used to play. How many were complaining in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s that games were taking too long?

We were happy to be playing, and time was seldom if ever an issue.

It usually means they can't control their swing to pull or to go opposite. Sure some go the middle but I think very very few try to intentionally injure the pitcher as you said.
(I rarely go the middle although I can, I think it is easier to hit either way),

yes that is true cal,but they say it this way,"if hrs are gone,and are outs,we have to hit middle"....just saying why even say it for an excuse.
