  1. This is a response from Rick White – Atlantic League President, regarding the partnership and new experiments in the Atlantic League, as presented by Major League Baseball:

    “Thank you for your email. We appreciate your interest in our Partnership with Major League Baseball. MLB does not want to risk any distraction with their players through rules/equipment testing due to the high stakes involved. With the resources at risk with player compensation, operations, sponsor and broadcast rights, etc., baseball is taking the prudent course of testing prior to potential implementation of potential rules. Candidly, we are flattered MLB chose us to be their partners. They trust in the integrity of our league and the high-quality skills of our players.
    I hope this helps answer your question. Thank you for your curiosity in the Atlantic League.”
