Re: MLB looking into lack of African-American players
We would play just with a couple people and had a rule where we basically looked at a hit and came to a consensus what the result would have been had there been fielders out there and you couldn't assume infield hits. You hit a weak grounder, you're out. You hit a hard grounder up the middle you get a single. Line drives were singles, fly balls were outs. You hit the fence (if we had one) you got a double, etc. If you couldn't agree on what the hit was, replay the at bat.
Or sometimes we would get a bucket of balls and one guy would pitch them all until the batter had hit all of them then we would gather all of the balls and switch places.
