Tri-Ball

Tri-Ball is a reinvention of baseball - designed for higher scores, making it faster and more exciting. This is another sport invented by Doug Yurchey (aka Tray Caladan) (see more of his R-World Sports). This sport is not currently played, but if Doug has anything to do with it, it will become a popular sport of the future.

Isn't it about time baseball changed? Maybe tomorrow's children cry for something new, different, fast, exciting, colorful, imaginative and…not boring! Something watchable?

Not saying: Let's change Major League Baseball. That would be impossible. But why not junk, nix, scrap almost everything about classic baseball and start again with a new League that stands somewhere, on some level, alongside the much bigger, pro game? How about it college students? How about one ballpark shaped a bit strangely?

We can still pick up a wooden bat and hit grounders, pop flies, foul balls, hits, outs or home runs like the pros or the kids. We can still strike-out, walk or drive-in runs…Why not change the playing field, the rules and design a new game conducive to SCORING and ACTION, like fast-paced basketball rather than slow, non-scoring soccer?

Why not change the "#1 pastime" entirely, radically change its face, make baseball QUICK and thrilling to play as well as to view from the stands? We don't go out on limbs; we don't venture 'Out of the Box' or dream deep or take chances and explore new territories. We're afraid to think and act differently. Why not approach a classic in a whole other way and improve it: come up with a better game or a much better way of doing things?

Here are advantage points to "Tri-Ball" [tribal, sticks & stones] over traditional, Major League Baseball:

Another divergence from the traditional game is in extra innings. Tri-Ball has no extra innings if the score is tied. None are necessary with a quick shoot-out as at the end of a tied soccer game or tie-break in tennis. Whatever side is up, puts its best player to bat. That player takes their maximum of 6 pitches and we view/record the result. If the player hits a single or double or does anything else, they immediately get off the field. Players of different teams alternate after 8 innings with a tied score. The other team's (best) player will either beat, match or not do as well as previous hitter (opponent). If one outdoes the other after a single round of individual batting, their team wins. If the opposing batter matches or does the same, then another round happens with different batters attempting to outdo the other and win for their team.

The "Tri-Ball Tie-Break" is an effective cure for endless inning after inning of extended baseball games, which are way too long.

Try Tri-Ball. If you build a Tri-Ball field…Maybe they'll come?
