Why bother to run at all then?
By your rationale, if I player hits a ground ball and sees the fielder glove it, he should just stop immediately and head back to the dugout.
Yeah that sounds like a really positive change to the game if implemented.
"And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.
