Rays McClanahan Happy With Outing, Will Adapt To Rule Changes

Shane McClanahan was dinged for not warming up in time resulting in opening a game down in the count 1-0. This led to a weird moment that you don’t often see, a meeting at the mound between the umprire, pitcher, manager, and the opposing batter!

McClanahan was also called for a balk for “quick pitch” later in the day. He is not deterred by the new rules noting that players will adapt, that’s what the game is about.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
