A few ideas to make baseball better

As baseball enters the mid-point of the season, I was thinking of a few ways to make the sport even better…

The first way is to get a mulligan rule. Not for every day, but one time a year, and not in the playoffs, or the World Series, however.

The second way is to bring back the 500+ feet range from home plate to the center field wall. They used to have them, but for reasons I do not know, they got rid of them. They where cool in the baseball games, and I would love to see one like the old Polo Grounds, or Ebbits Field again.

Way number three is to bring back the fans in center field. This just having them from right field to left field is stupid. The home runs from center field are where the money is.

Another way to make baseball better is to stop “upgrading” or building new stadiums every twenty years. What was wrong with Yankee Stadium? The House that Ruth Built was just fine. This new one had to wait a few years before they even entered the post season… I get that Bud Selig wants all baseball to be played outdoors by 2020, but then you have to factor in your Minnesota and Toronto playing years have snow in them…lots of snow. With the Skydome and Meteodome, you could play all year if you wanted to, but I am happy that Target Field opened up and Minnesota is finally playing outdoors again! If the old Met Stadium was any indication, then we could see a few good things from the Twins…eventually…I hope.

Anyway, there are a few ideas that I have to make baseball even better. If you have any of your own, please feel free to add them in the comments and let me know. Thanks
