Interesting about the baseline rule. Although I don't have my rulebook handy at the moment, I believe that in Little League, the "baseline" is what is established by the runner in the judgment of the umpire. I like interleague play as a special case, but I agree that having it throughout the season is silly. Of course, now that there are an odd number of teams in each league, they have no choice (unless they change the Monday/ Thursday day-off scheduling). Thankfully, it sounds like Lackey's injury is not too serious.
