TORONTO -- Major League Baseballs new rule on home plate collisions is causing some confusion. Customized Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys . Houston Astros manager Bo Porter had a telephone conversation Wednesday with Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa, currently a special assistant to baseball commissioner Bud Selig. Porter said La Russa told him the league intends to clarify its rule on blocking the plate, and how such calls are challenged and reviewed. "My understanding is there will be a memo coming out that will bring some more clarity to it," Porter said before the Astros played the Blue Jays on Wednesday night. MLB spokesman Michael Teevan said he wasnt aware of any plans for a new memo. Porter telephoned La Russa after Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes was called out at the plate on an infield grounder in the eighth inning of Tuesdays 5-2 loss. That made him the second manager in four days to pick up the phone after a call at home plate. On Saturday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke to Joe Torre, an MLB executive vice-president, over his concern there was "confusion to the rule." New Yorks Francisco Cervelli was called out trying to score against Toronto, even though Blue Jays catcher Josh Thole was straddling the plate before receiving the ball. "I believe this is going to be the toughest overall for (umpires) to get right all the time," Girardi said after Saturdays 4-0 loss to Toronto. "To me, its a vague interpretation of what blocking home plate is and I think it needs to be in writing." In January, baseball adopted a new rule on plate collisions on an experimental basis for this year. Under the rule, catchers are prevented from blocking a runners path to the plate unless they have possession of the ball. "Its a rule that was ... agreed to late, and I dont know if everything has been completely ironed out," Girardi said Sunday. Porter said he planned to speak to the umpiring crew during the exchange of lineup cards before Wednesdays game to ask for their interpretation of the rule, and the challenge process on those plays.

The university will also maintain the suspension of the mens hockey program through the 2014-15 season. University president Allan Rock says the coach was not involved in the misconduct, but should have notified authorities about the allegations. Rock says the university will also put in place new policies and behaviour guidelines for athletes. The university commissioned its own one-man inquiry into the incidents, but will not release the findings of that probe because police are conducting their own investigation. "Independent investigator Steven Gaon conducted interviews related to the events in Thunder Bay, including allegations of excessive drinking and sexual misconduct," the university said in a statement. The findings led to the decision to cancel the coming season. "Gaons findings reveal that while the events in Thunder Bay represented an isolated incident, the behaviour of some players was unacceptable, did not reflect the universitys values and failed to meet the universitys expectations of its student-athletes." The University of Otttawa website says Real Paiement has been coach of the mens team since 2011. Steve Mason Flyers Jersey. He is a former head coach of the Canadian junior team and was named coach of the year in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2002. Rock also said he realizes that some innocent players have been tarred by the scandal. "I am very much aware that for those members of our hockey team who were not in Thunder Bay, and for those who were present but took no part in the alleged events, this has been an especially difficult time." he said. "The shadow cast by the allegations of misconduct has affected all members of the team, some unfairly. But the university, too, is caught in the middle, Rock said. "We cannot name names, either way, for fear of doing greater injustice or of running afoul of the law ourselves. We can only wait, as we all must wait, for the police investigation to run its course, hoping that when it concludes that will add greater clarity." Police in Thunder Bay said the universitys review was separate from their own investigation, which also recently concluded. "Were currently reviewing the investigative file with the Crown," said spokesman Chris Adams, adding that an announcement on the case was expected "within the next few weeks."
