There could also be no pitch clock within the majors subsequent season in spite of everything.
Rob Manfred has back-tracked on his calls for for a pitch clock, as an alternative keen to push off such a call for one more 12 months, in keeping with Bob Nightengale of USA At the moment.
The proposal to the baseball union is that if the typical sport time in 2018 is available in below 2 hours and 55 minutes, then there wouldn’t be a pitch clock in 2019 both. Nonetheless, failing to satisfy that threshold would result in a pitch clock being instituted subsequent 12 months.
A pitch clock is considered one of a number of pace-of-play initiatives being thought of by the league, in addition to limits on mound visits and batters being allowed to step out of the field.
