I used to think baseball was the sport with the most silly set of ever-changing, unwritten rules.
You know: Thou shalt not steal bases after the sixth inning when ahead by five runs. Or is it six runs after the seventh inning?
Also, don't drop a bunt when the opposing pitcher is working a no-hitter. Although nobody seems to agree in which inning that law goes into effect. Heck if anybody knows the protocol in a 1-0 game, when that potential baserunner is not merely the potential spoiler of history but the prospective tying run.
