Here's how you revolutionize baseball

  1. I've never been a fan of the pitcher's mound.  Supposedly it was put there for better drainage and water absorption and the pitchers found it was beneficial to them.  I propose baseball gets rid of the mound completely.  Instead, put the hitters in a hole.  It would be just like your Rec League Softball field.
  2. Move the bases so that they are 180 feet apart.  More running and athleticism.  The bases would be between the infielders and the outfielders, so if  a ball is hit to an infielder, the right fielder has to cover first.  Too much standing around as it is now.
  3. Smaller gloves and mitts, perhaps even get rid of the webbing.  Make routine hit balls not so routine.
  4. No longer allow players to run past first base, they have to stop or be tagged out if momentum carries them forward.
