NEW YORK (AP) - Interpreters may be able to make mound trips with managers and pitching coaches this year.
Baseball owners approved the rules change when they met last week in Paradise Valley, Ariz. The change, which would be used to assist pitchers not fluent in English, now goes to the players' association, which also must approve it for the change to start this year.
The owners' vote was first reported by ESPN.com.
