I agree with whoever first suggested that, during interleague play, the NL ballparks play by the AL rules and vice versa. That would make it much more novel.
Or, as an even better change of pace, during interleague play, they should make up new rules entirely.

I'm pretty sure we've offered this up in the past as a way to revolutionize baseball, but I still think it would make for an interesting day.

There... I guess this way, we can see that it's gonna be cold like a witches tit out there. If the game gets long, it could get under 50 degrees out there. I would then strongly consider rushing the field just so I could 1) Get the blood flowing and 2) Potentially get tased and warm up with a nice soothing stream of hot electricity.
