"For a professional sport, there is an inordinate amount of math involved in baseball. With the seemingly endless amount of complex statistics (FIP? ERA ? LIPS?), America’s pastime is definitely a numbers game. So it may surprise you that there is an incredibly basic (albeit trivial) mathematical error in the Major League Baseball rulebook, one that has been there for more than a century. Since the modern rules of baseball were standardized in 1900, Rule 1.05 in the MLB handbook has mandated that the top edge of home plate must be 17 inches long, the two sides must be 8.5 inches, and each of the two legs that form the back of the plate must be 12 inches. As 'Now I Know' newsletter author (and Mets fan) Dan Lewis points out, 'That’s a problem. Math-wise, that is.' You can use your high school math knowledge to point out that, technically, exactly zero MLB games adhere strictly to this rule. While the rulebook doesn’t specifically say that", nypost.com
"From Yahoo Sports: On a night when the No. 1 prospect in baseball made his major league debut for the Washington Nationals, another ballyhooed young pitcher finally earned the first win of his career for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Julio Urias made his MLB debut for the Dodgers earlier this season with the same hype Lucas Giolito experienced Tuesday. Giolito pitched well for Washington through four innings but didn’t return to the mound after a rain delay.", sports.yahoo.com
