What Will the MLB Rule Changes Actually Change? Plus: ‘Koshien’ Director Ema Ryan Yamazaki

Universal designated hitter, a runner on second base to start extra innings, and expanded active rosters—what will all this mean for the on-field product in 2020? We discuss those changes, their effect on our beloved Yoenis Céspedes, and where Yasiel Puig will end up (0:00). Then, we are joined by documentary filmmaker Ema Ryan Yamazaki to discuss her film ‘Koshien: Japan’s Field of Dreams’—an engrossing, humanistic exploration of Japan’s national high school baseball tournament and the players and coaches that compete in it (0:00). Hosts: Jake Mintz and Jordan Shusterman Guest: Ema Ryan Yamazaki
