Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It was a freak incident, the fielder clearly didn't deflect intentionally, the ball is out of play, why add another rule just to cover a freak incident? It's just simpler to treat it as a ground rule double and be done with it.

I agree with you that the current rules are fine as they are, and both accidental and intentional deflection are clearly covered.

My point is that I understand why some people are grumbling about that play last night, and are crying for a change to the existing rules.

My antivax niece just posted something stupid again, part of which was "a virus with a 98% survival rate". I always wonder why the folks who push the "98% survival" line never do the math that 2% of 360 Million = 7,200,000 dead. Like wiping one of the big metro areas off the map.

Let's assume your niece has 200 friends on her social media account. Ask her which 4 people on that list she wants dead.

One of my remaining lifelong friends has become an anti-vaxxer and a rabid conspiracy theorist. It''s sad, actually. I stopped arguing with him even though I see him from time to time on the bike path.
One of my other friends has been arguing with him on FB. He claims all of the people in "one state" who are hospitalized are vaxxed.

I don''t understand why some people want to believe the conspiracies and reject all other knowledge.

If I had 200 friends I’m sure I could point to 4 of them I can’t stand.

But would you be willing to wish death on them? That's kind of a whole new level of dislike.
