MLB average game time drops 6 minutes ahead of pitch clock


NEW YORK (AP) — The average time of a nine-inning major league game dropped this season for the first time since 2018. The introduction of the PitchCom electronic device to signal pitches was likely a factor. The commissioner’s office says the major league average this season was 3 hours, 3 minutes, 44 seconds. The figure declined from a record 3 hours, 10 minutes, 7 seconds last year and was the lowest since 3 hours, 44 seconds in 2018.
