Announced this morning by Minor League baseball…
“Double-A, Triple-A to implement pitch clock”
Link to full story on MiLB.com.
Apparently it worked so good being tested in the Arizona Fall League that the ownership decided to move forward with the idea.
Personally, I think it takes away from the lazy Sunday afternoon feel of a ballgame. The history. The relaxed and old time feel of baseball. Then again, I suppose if fans are riveted to a pitch clock it would help them be less likely to not pay attention resulting in a foul ball to the forehead. (Ask the Phillie Phanatic about that..)
So, expect a new time piece at Coca Cola Park this upcoming season.
