Baseball in a dome
Here is the Tokyo Dome. I've been to Osaka Dome before though, still it was weird to watch baseball game in a such covered studium.
There was a great smash at the game. The hit ball leaped up straightly toward the home-run area, but at the next second, the call hit the dome itself and fell down. That WAS a homerun (slam) !!! But unfortunately the ball fell into a fielder's grab, then, the batter was out.
They used to have a different rule that such hit was counted as a slam. But since then, they have changed the rule and now such a great smash is counted as same as a pop fly. Such a mean rule!!!
Anyway, baseball should be outside under the sun light, after all.
