Blue Jays catchers don't like new home plate collision rule

Player safety is at the forefront of all major sports these days, with helmet enhancements, improvements to pitchers hats, and more prevalent, rules in place to prevent unnecessary collisions.  But what if the collision is necessary to block home plate?  That’s what Dioner Navarro asks, as he is not a fan (at least yet) of the new major league rule to eliminate home plate collisions...

Six of nine lives lived by Dioner Navarro

Mediocre catchers play forever. If you can squat behind the plate and block a few balls in the dirt and not totally embarrass yourself with your arm, somebody in Major League Baseball will employ you. Hitting is optional.
