This Time it Counts: All Star Game 2003

This year, the All-Star Game will not be just a soft played game and won't end in a tie. Because this time, the league that wins the All-Star Game will have home field advantage in the World Series. Why not give it to the team with the best record? If they have the same record, then look to the All-Star Game to give home-field advantage. You might think home field advantage doesn't matter in baseball, but many World Series have been decided by home field advantage. Just look at the 2001 series between the Yankees and Diamondbacks. No team won a game on the road. And because that year was the National League's home field year, the Diamondbacks got four games at home while the Yankees got three. So if they abolish it, keep it, whatever they do, home field advantage does matter in the World Series.

Website owner's note: This is a two-year experiment to help improve FOX's ratings, since they figure more people will want to watch the All Star Game if it counts for something.
