Learn something new every day, baseball edition

Rule 3.09 from the Major League Baseball Official Rule Book:

Players in uniform shall not address or mingle with spectators, nor sit in the stands before, during, or after a game. No manager, coach or player shall address any spectator before or during a game. Players of opposing teams shall not fraternize at any time while in uniform.

At the very least, this rule is broken every time a player signs an autograph before a game or hands a ball to a kid during a game.
