    They'd have a better shot if they just tried starting a pro Baseketball league.

    There aren't even words to describe the stupidity.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    How about extreme?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    They should just play it like regular baseball but have a couple of pissed off Liger's running around the ball field.

    If you really want "Xtreme" baseball, why not let the pitcher take one step forward each time he throws a strike? And put trampolines on the warning track.

    And the bases could be Roombas that just randomly move about the field.
