The major parts of the new CBA were released very quickly, but it's 182 pages, so more minor items will trickle out here in the next few days. <br>And here's a nugget, thanks to some digging from the Associated Press: <br>"If the All-Star Game remains tied after nine innings, the game will be decided by a Home Run Derby between the teams, subject to the parties' agreement on details and format," reads exhibit 13, titled "Tentative Agreement — All-Star Game and Home Run Derby."<br>Be still, my beating heart. <br>While some of us have at least halfway-joked about doing this in regular-season games -- I'd be dead serious and not even remotely joking in saying it should happen in around the 13th or 14th inning -- an exhibition game with nothing on the line is the absolute perfect time to employ this. <br>Remember, no team wants its pitchers going more than a few innings or being extended beyond their personal stamina threshold in these games, so going deep into extras is bad for everyone. Fortunately, the last two times it happened (2017 and 2018), the game only lasted 10 innings. But back in 2008, it went a ridiculous 15 innings. And then the previous time was 2002 when both managers told commissioner Bud Selig they were out of pitching and he called the game in Milwaukee a tie. <br>Now, we can all see the caveat in the above entry, with the "subject to agreement" part, but let's just pretend it's already a done deal. <br>The All-Star Game will take place in Dodger Stadium on July 19. If it gets through nine innings, there's a chance we'll see some sort of Home Run Derby to finish the job. Not only would this be all kinds of fun, but I actually think everyone in attendance would actually be rooting for a tie through nine innings. What a fun conclusion that would be to the All-Star festivities. <br>© 2004-2022 CBS Interactive. All Rights Reserved.<br>CBS Sports is a registered trademark of CBS Broadcasting Inc.
