Smoltz says baseball needs to make some changes _ and fast _ to make the game more watchable and more appealing to fans both young and old. Smoltz told PodcastOne Sports Now co-hosts Tim Dahlberg and Jim Litke that baseball needs to deal with the way the game has changed because of analytics and implement rule changes to make sure decisions aren't always ruled by people using spreadsheets. He said the game is running itself into the ground and isn’t sustainable as it is being played today. (AP Photo/John Amis, File)

FILE - In this Dec. 2, 2017, file photo, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer stands along the sideline during the first half of the team's Big Ten championship NCAA college football game against Wisconsin in Indianapolis. The investigation of how Meyer handled domestic violence accusations against an assistant has drawn attention to his contractual obligation to report violations of Ohio State’s sexual misconduct policy. It’s a type of specificity becoming increasingly common in college athletic contracts, especially for highly paid coaches who are standard-bearers for their universities. Sports law experts say such provisions clarify expectations for those employees and can make it easier for schools to fire them without compensation if they fall short.
