No Home Run Limit
How about an unlimited HR division? I believe Rick Sheer said defense is just a place you stand til its your turn to bat, anyway lol

Or go back to awarding 1st after the limit is met. I think that would also offer some protection to the pitchers. I know when the HR's are up, I start thinking middle.

Maskedman, off topic here but did you know Rich Scheer’s son, Adam Scheer, is Braun Strowman in the WWE?

Having played on Timberworks 65M+, I disagree with the statement that defense is a place to stand until you bat. (LOL) We have won for several years with a potent combination of defense and offense. One mistake defensively can cost you 7 runs easily in this game. One at bat can net you 4 if you hit a grand slam. Making that play for the third out is huge. Back in 2012 we played 9 runs an inning and 12 homeruns a game. I don't think that's a bad number for the top division. But the defense then could cost you 9 runs. This happened to us twice when we didn't make the play for the third out with zero runs in.

I'm glad the All You Can Eat days are gone. It was boring and tedious. Having a limit allows for what I believe a more competitive and exciting game.

if you dont have a good defense in this game it is very hard to win...limits helps the game and hurts the sandbaggers ....

R4pitch, I agree wholeheartedly. There’s an old adage that says it all:
“Offense wins you games, defense wins you tournaments”

12 home runs and 9 runs an inning how long were the games i believe we played 1 7 inning game in worlds this year with 6HRS n 5runs i would not want to be the umpire for 12HRS n 9run and the pay the same as a 6hrs n 5runs. GSL has 8 HRS and a DHH and if he walks anyone can hit a homer and it not go against your teams 8 and i have not seen 12 home runs and that is using the rock
