Hey guys, how about letting the home team decide whether the game should end in a tie? This would add to the homefield advantage and allow managers to strategically use their players for the number of innings they’d want before deciding whether or not to call it a draw. If the team has a long road trip that night, they could end it – if they know the opposing team does (especially if it is a division rival) extend – if they know their key relievers need a day of rest – tie. Need a win to make up a game in the wild-card race – extend… I think it would be a great way to add another strategic quirk to a game we love for its quirkiness.
