This rule dictates that, starting with the 13th inning, each half-inning will begin with runners on first and second base, with the batting order intact. The applicability of the rule to the championship game of the tournament is under review by the rules and regulations committee.
What??? That's not baseball. If both teams have runners on first and second don't they stand the same chance of scoring the same amount of runs whether none, two or seventeen?
Can you imagine watching a baseball game where there's magically two guys on? Who are the two guys? Anyone you want? The last two batters?
Why not have a home run derby? Why not have a re-entry rule? Why not let the fans vote by calling an 800 number?
