The Incredible Disappearing Batter's Box
Mike's Baseball Rants has a post about stopping the beanings through enforcement of the batter's box. An interesting idea.
What has me thinking though is, why in the Hell is the batter's box still made out of chalk? Why isn't it made out of the same material and implanted in the ground in the same way that home plate is? Somebody will say safety (spikes caught in the rubber material), but I don't buy it. Do we have many problems with batters or fielders touching home plate?
