I could not care less about how hard someone runs out on a stinking ground ball unless they are a truly fast player where it actually could make a difference. On this team, that means Billy Hamilton and only Billy Hamilton.
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.
