    Suggest the rules committee take up the following for discussion. I suggest the Thursday competitive league have an open pitch runner rule in league play. This will increase the speed of the game and eliminate runners being thrown out from base hits to the outfield. A pinch runner can only run once per inning and cannot come up in the batting order while pinch running or he is out.

    It is each manager’s prerogative to utilize this rule.
