How to revolutionize baseball

Umpires should throw penalty flags when something happens that's not very sporting. Like when guys argue balls and strikes a little too much, throw the flag. Just like football.

Then, what you do is when your team gets a penalty flag thrown against them, the other team gets a runner on second base regardless of who's up to bat.

Imagine the antics when the defense has a runner on second base. Should the batter swing for the fences? His homer will essentially become pointless cause the runner will count against him. Man, that would be fantastic.
