  • Olympic baseball apparently likes the NCAAFB OT rules

    http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/new...rainningchange

    Each team’s at-bat in the 11th inning and beyond will begin with runners on first and second bases. Teams may start the 11th at any point in their batting order under format changes announced Friday by the International Baseball Federation and adopted in time for next month’s Beijing Games.

    Baseball and softball are making their last appearance for a while, after the International Olympic Committee voted to eliminate the sports from the 2012 London Games. Both sports are working to be reinstated for the 2016 Olympics.

      Pretty interesting actually.

      Do you play for 1 or try to score more?

                      The next proposed rule says that the winner of said games determines the next city to host the olympics.

                        why not just have each team take turns throwing a football through a basketball hoop.

                        makes about as much sense

                          I also thought this was stupid, but the reasoning behind it makes a little more sense.

                          Essentially, they have a number of games to get through in a small period of time. Any game that goes way long delays other games, and in trying to keep the games on somewhat of a schedule, they came up with this.

                          It sucks, but I understand you can't have the baseball tournament ending after the Olympics are over due to a bunch of extra-inning games, or have the games going on overnight.
