[phujouwb] Baseball without home runs except in extra innings

As before, we propose eliminating the home run, but just from the first 9 innings of baseball.  Instead of foul as before, it counts as an automatic double (incorrectly often called a ground-rule double) similar to if a ball bounces in play and goes over any fence.

We bring back home runs only for extra innings, and extra innings are played as sudden death for both teams, because we want the game to end as soon as possible.  All home runs become walk-offs, increasing the drama.
