John Gibbons On Safe Sliding: "Maybe We'll Come Out Wearing Dresses Tomorrow"

MLB instituted a new slide rule. That rule cost the Toronto Blue Jays against the Tampa Bay Rays. Jose Bautista was called for runner interference, negating two runs in a 3-2 loss.

Jays manager John Gibbons criticized said rule in the games’ aftermath. He apparently views safe sliding as a slippery slope to wearing women’s clothing.

Probably best to express your frustration about a baseball rule without degrading an entire gender.
