In another moment of 2019 being way too “woke” the MLB has decided to join the party. The MLB announced they are making a huge move. What is that move? They are changing the name of the “Disabled List” to the “Injured List” because of concerns over the word “disabled”. As much as I wish I was making this stuff up, I am not.
Say goodbye to the disabled list.
Major League Baseball is renaming its designation for hurt players the "Injured List" and getting rid of the DL, a fixture in the game since 1966, a source familiar with the plan tells ESPN.

This switch comes after a list of other proposed changes that actually you know, have to do with the game of baseball.
MLB is considering big rule changes, including:
-Making the designated hitter universal across the NL and AL
-Requiring pitchers to face at least 3 batters
-Extra innings to start with a runner at 2nd base in spring training and the All-Star Game pic.twitter.com/WRj2UlrEIQ

I don’t see the point of some of these rules. But whatever, at least they have to do with baseball.
