The era of peak stupidity continues to rage as the social media bullies have claimed another scalp to hang on their increasingly crowded trophy wall.
In a sop to social justice warriors and liberal cranks who don’t give a rat’s ass about the sport, the leadersheep of Major League Baseball announced that they were renaming the “disabled list” so as to not risk offending the handicapped which basically translates into them being terrified of being called mean names on Twitter.
It was yet another epic surrender of the type that are ruining sports by allowing the political left to hijack the games to bludgeon fans with their politics of racial grievance, socialism, and forced diversity.

Via The Associated Press, “DL shelved: Baseball’s disabled list becomes injured list”:
Major League Baseball is changing the name of its disabled lists to injured lists.
Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem said Thursday the change is being made at the suggestion of advocacy groups for the disabled, including the Link20 Network.
Clubs were notified of the change in a Dec. 20 memo to clubs from Jeff Pfeifer, senior director of league economics and operations in the commissioner’s office. The change was first reported by ESPN.
“In recent years, the commissioner has received several inquiries regarding the name of the ‘Disabled List,‘” Pfeifer wrote. “The principal concern is that using the term ‘disabled’ for players who are injured supports the misconception that people with disabilities are injured and therefore are not able to participate or compete in sports. As a result, Major League Baseball has agreed to change the name ‘Disabled List’ to be the ‘Injured List’ at both the major and minor league levels. All standards and requirements for placement, reinstatement, etc., shall remain unchanged. This change, which is only a rebranding of the name itself, is effective immediately.”
