Political Correctness for Major League Baseball. No More “Disabled List.”

Nice. The Daily Political Correctness Report

The disabled list as we know it is no more.

The DL will now be known as the “injured list” according to an ESPN report, which cited a source familiar with the MLB’s plan.

The change is due to the league’s concern that the term “‘disabled’ falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports,” ESPN reported.

Despite the name change, the rules of the DL will remain the same, the report said.
