Welcome back to Inside the Village, a one-of-a-kind podcast where all news is local — and no topic is off-limits.

On this week's episode: Some new twists at the old ballgame.

Determined to win over a new generation of fans, Major League Baseball has introduced some big changes aimed at speeding up the sport, including a pitch clock and bigger bases. Good move? We ask Matt Betts, a reporter at CambridgeToday who also hosts the Canadian Baseball Network Podcast.

One thing is certain: Whatever the rules, Toronto Blue Jays fans are feeling pretty good about the team's chances this year. It's World Series or bust, with the home opener set for April 11.
