A more interesting would be the 1st batter hits or starts at 1st base....


Does the homerun hitter bat or equivalent of an intentional walk (still like as a potential unearned run)?

Starting at first requires more strategy from both teams. Bunt, Steal, Hit-and-Run, and bring in a pinch runner are all on the table that are not if the runner starts at 2nd base. Plus for defense, the double-play is still available.

I like starting at 1st base for NCAA to shorten games and save pitching arms.

GO HOOS!!
