As usual, a tough, but fun, puzzle.
But...I am really puzzled by 12 Down.
Clue:  Major no-nos?
Answer:  CARTS
Can anyone elucidate?

I kinda think its a crappy clue.  In golf, some tournaments are Majors.  Golf carts aren't allowed.  But they're not allowed on the PGA at all in any event.  So Patrick either equivocated  PGA = Major leagues (not realizing in golf that Majors are simply the most prestigious events and not a reference to the 'big leagues') or .... perhaps they're not alllowed in baseball. :P

Ah, a golf reference.  No wonder I was "puzzled".
But thanks, I've been wondering about this one for a long time.
