Instead of Baseball, It's Become Balkball

April 30, 1988

I have been following what I thought was the game of baseball for 40 years. Yet, with the strict enforcement of the balk rule so far this season, I can't be sure what I am following.

How often have umpires' balk calls affected the outcomes of games? Perhaps we should change the name of the game to balkball .
