Home Run Rule?
I'd like your opinions on the Home Run Rule. Do you like the rule now? If you were to change it would you go to One up or a single after a HR? Would you modify it for the higher divisons and younger players?

Yes, without a doubt for 2 reasons.
It's the safest way to play our game
and because it's the most fun.
It's safer because when guys can hit
the ball out without penalty
the unwritten code of keeping the ball off the pitcher is in effect.
And it's the most fun because
hitting a ball hard, fast and/or far
is key to the intrinsic joy of the experience of hitting.

Having 10 hrs in Major + will benefit the teams with money and a large pool of players to pull from. I would not have a problem with the rule if teams could elect to play major + but to move teams up if they do well in major is an injustice to those teams. They would either need to change the make up of the team or be very, very good to compete. There is no way to defense a hr. Just my opinion.
