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
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.
