Bring The Rules Home!

So apparently there's baseball at the Olympics (which is news to me despite the fact that I kinda knew there was basketball), but this summer could be its last appearance for a while after the International Olympic Committee voted to keep it out of the 2012 London Games. But that's not why I'm writing. This summer, the International Baseball Federation decided to change up the rules for extra innings played in Beijing this August. To keep it from turning into a never-ending game (and because of time constraints), teams start the 11th inning with players on first and second, no outs and from any point on their batting order.

Now why can't this just be the rule every other time, too? Then we won't have to sit through a 5-hour long game!
