Top Sports Stories According To Twitter #4: Speed It Up A Little

speeding up baseball

So Major League Baseball has been trying for a little while now to improve the pace of play of each game in order to attract more fans and to keep the current fans interested in the games. They have fooled around with a pitch clock in the Arizona Fall League and in the Minor Leagues. They have also gotten rid of the pitcher being required to throw four pitches in order to intentionally walk a batter.

Let’s see what Twitter has to say about this.

 

I personally believe that all these ideas on how to improve the pace of play for baseball are not going to make much of a difference. And in the grand scheme of things I don't believe it is going to accomplish what they want it to. It is not going to draw more fans to the game and it is only going to piss off some of the fans that already watch baseball. If you want more fans to watch baseball then come up with ideas to make the game more exciting. And if you really want to improve the pace of play, then get rid of all these extra commercials. But we all know that is not going to happen.
