MLB rolls out a number of changes for baseball

One of the changes as mandated by Major League Baseball (MLB) is a bigger base. The traditional base is a square with 15-inch sides, and the new base is now 18 inches along the side, which not only means more base to grab but also means that the distance between the bases is slightly less. The intention of league officials is to reduce injuries and increase stolen bases, an element of the game that has been decimated in the era of analytics.
