    Also -- didn't read the article -- they are changing the ball so that there are fewer home runs.

    Good move IMO. Although I would prefer them to simply not make the baseball fields so small in the first place. Watching outfielders have to cover a lot of ground out there and chase down balls hit off the wall is so much more enjoyable to watch than a 320-foot HR.

    Dutch superstar Johan Neeskens was a standout baseball player in his youth and attracted interest from scouts for the Chicago Cubs, who offered him a developmental contract. Baseball is quite popular in The Netherlands and Neeskens played until forced to choose between soccer and baseball at the age of 16, but had been the top hitter at the European Youth Baseball Championship in Rome in 1966.
