Scuffing baseball could lead to 10-game suspension for non-pitchers
Major League Baseball makes some quirky rule changes for the first time in 13 years.

Under another change, a player may no longer step into a dugout to catch a foul ball. He still will be allowed to reach into a dugout.
Another change is, a batter who hits an apparent game-ending home run with less than two outs would be allowed to circle the bases if a runner ahead of him doesn't continue to home plate, thinking the game is over. If there are two outs when the play begins, however, the runner who abandons trying for home plate would be the third out and the home run would not count.
I like these.
