ORLANDO, Fla. Cheap Adidas Shoes . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Major League Baseball Executive Vice-President Joe Torre said Tuesday momentum is building toward taking action that would help prevent collisions at home plate. "Theres a pretty good possibility that something eventually will happen," he said Tuesday after a meeting of big league general managers. "Whether its going to be soon enough to have it done this coming year, that remains to be seen. But I dont think its impossible." Torre said a written proposal will be developed that will be discussed when GMs gather again during the winter meetings, to be held at Lake Buena Vista from Dec. 9-12. "There are college rules where you have to slide. Im not saying thats what youre going to do." Torre said. "The players are bigger, stronger, faster. Its like in other sports. Theyve made adjustments and rules in other sports for that reason, to protect people." Torre said collisions when pitchers cover the plate on wild pitches and passed balls also are an issue. He planned to discuss the matter Wednesday with baseballs rules committee. "Youre going to have very understanding people there, a feeling that something has to be done," he said. A change for 2014 would need the approval of the players association. "Suffice it to say, the players have some thoughts of their own regarding home-plate collisions as well as a number of other topics," union deputy executive director Tony Clark, a former All-Star himself, said in an email to The Associated Press. "Well be addressing them all when we meet next month." Discussion to limit or ban collisions has intensified since May 2011, when San Franciscos Buster Posey was injured in a collision with Floridas Scott Cousins. Posey, an All-Star catcher, sustained a broken bone in his lower left leg and three torn ligaments in his ankle, an injury that ended his season. Posey returned to win the NL batting title and MVP award in 2012, when he led the Giants to their second World Series title in three seasons. "All that we know now about whats happening in any sport with collisions and concussions has to be examined, not only from the catchers standpoint, but from the baserunners standpoint," Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. "Do you really want anybody in harms way and should they allow there to be any malicious intent in baseball?" Torre said he will get together at the winter meetings next month with San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy and St. Louis skipper Mike Matheny, who retired as a player after the 2006 season because of a concussion. "Id be in favour of further discussing that position and ending that situation," New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. "I dont think catchers should be getting pounded. Id certainly be in favour of changing that rule." Concussions have become a bigger issue in baseball. David Ross of Boston and Alex Avila of Detroit jettisoned their hockey-style headgear and went back to old-style, heavier catchers masks because of foul tips. Ross missed a large portion of the season after concussions caused by tips off the bat of Torontos Colby Rasmus and Baltimores Manny Machado. "Guys are throwing harder on a consistent basis, the ball moves more, more foul tips," Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski said. "Our catcher takes a beating on a day-in, day-out basis."
