Batter, Take Your Base

Major League Baseball has reportedly decided to change the procedure for an intentional walk.  Instead of having the pitcher throw four pitches outside the batter's strike zone, the defensive team will give the batter first base via a signal from the dugout.  The purpose is allegedly to speed up the game.

In my own personal experience, such a signal has been used in slow-pitch softball.
