Jay asked: In the Giants Braves game today, 6-2-16, the home plate umpire produced and threw a white flag onto the field after Jeff Francouer struck out.

What is this?

I've never seen that before in my life!

Is this a new rule?

Rick answered: Jay, thank you for your question.

Sorry, I have been unable to locate any information on what that might mean.

Possibly some of our readers may have run across it.

Yours in baseball,
