The MLB made a pretty huge announcement Wednesday regarding the All-Star game.
Same game, new rules
The league that wins baseball's All-Star Game will no longer get home-field advantage in the World Series. Instead, it will go to the pennant winner with the better regular-season record.
The decision was reached Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.
In addition, players and management agreed the minimum stay on the disabled list will be reduced from 15 days to 10.

Baseball fans have long debated the controversial rule.
Here's some background
Home-field advantage in the World Series generally rotated between the leagues through 2002. Major League Baseball, led by then-Commissioner Bud Selig, and Fox television promoted the "This Time It Counts" innovation after the 2002 All-Star Game in Milwaukee ended in a 7-7, 11-inning tie when both teams ran out of pitchers.
Selig was booed in his own Milwaukee backyard.
