Agreed. what would be a good percentage?


Not sure, I'd have to sit down and look at the numbers. Probably something like:

1st fine=1% of salary
2nd=3%
3rd=5%
4th=10%
5th=20%

Just a rough guess at it for now. It's got to be enough to get the player's attention. How many major leaguer's miss $5,000? Minimum salary is what, $500,000 a year? Everyone makes a mistake or two, so start small. For those who just don't care and rack up fines, a fine in the 10-20% range would get their attention.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

hey and don't forget to add in there....

All fines go the the "Little League Assoc." Not just the American's but the World. New parks, equipment, that kinda stuff. That way third world countries can quit using cardboard boxes as gloves and Then MLB can "grow" baseball overall. :-)

They can also use that money to properly train coches... Very Good Point. Mandatory coaching clinics. I am not a fan of the LLWS. I think it is way too much pressure on kids that are supposed to be enjoying a game. and the only reason that pressure is there is for the enjoyment of adults..It wrong. :-)

Doesn't ripken have his own league now....? How are they doing ?

coaching clinics seems like a good idea...how about getting someone to calm down the parents as well?

More like 2.5 million. It would get the player's attention though.

Yes, definitely give the money to a charity for children.
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.

mad, 20% is 1/5. a-rod is making 25 mil a year. 1/5 of 25 is 5 mil.


and give it to the humane society or Make a Wish or united negro college fund or some charitable place.

I thought you meant for the first offense. I was even wrong there too.

1%=250,000
3%=750,000
5%=1,250,000
10%=2,500,000
20%=5,000,000

So under my rough draft, If Arod was fined 5 times in a year, he would pay a total of $9,750,000.
