Plate Collisions Baseball-3

FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2006, file photo, Oakland Athletics' Dan Johnson, left, collides with Seattle Mariners' Kenji Johjima at home plate but was out on the play as Johjima held onto the ball in the ninth inning of a baseball game at Safeco Field in Seattle. New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, chairman of the rules committee, announced Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, that Major League Baseball plans to eliminate home plate collisions. He said player health and increased awareness of concussions were behind the decision. (AP Photo/Kevin P. Casey, File)
