Home Run Rule For 50 Majors
What does anyone think about limiting home runs in 50 major to 5 or 7 per game and then outs( no more one up and then walks)?

How about the team that wins the flip picks a set of rules(pre determined what he can choice ahead of time) for that game...sounds like fun!

JMAC 00,

I agree with you regarding "walks should be outs." That is the only way to force teams up. If teams make outs because they hit homeruns over the limit, they might think about moving up versus staying in major. This would eliminate the talk I heard regarding a 50 AAA team hitting 18(?) homeruns in a game. However, I do think the homerun rule for major should be increased to eight or nine. Seven humeruns for major to twelve homeruns for major plus in too much of a gap. Major teams have to completely re-tool to compete. Teams have indicated they don't want to break up, so move the major humerun rule closer to the major plus rule. By increasing the number of homeruns, teams would learn how to power-up and be more competitive with the major plus teams if they have to move up.
