Power to the players!

Major League Baseball, rather than imposing a rule, allows the players to decide their own unwritten rules for celebrations.  “Manfred: Unwritten Rules Left to Players,” The Wall Street Journal, April 22, 2016 D8.

If rules are unwritten, who enforces them?  Culture is the behavior that is accepted in a community.

Does your company, department, team, club, fraternity/sorority, church/synagogue/mosque, social group, family, or friendship have unwritten rules?  If you don’t comply with them, what happens to you?  Is that compliance in action?
