Each team would get to send up their three best hitters, who would get either 10 pitches or five outs to work with per round. Whoever has the most homeruns at the end, wins.He credits the NHL’s shootout for giving him the three-round idea.Turner also says a coach should throw the pitches to save pitcher’s arms.
