MLB Continuing to Look to Speed Up Pace of Play

As many of you know since MLB has changed commissioners from Bud Selig to Rob Manfred, Manfred has attempted to speed up the game for the casual baseball fan.

When Manfred became commissioner of the MLB he had a few motives in mind to change baseball. Manfred has the goals of bringing in the younger baseball audience, embracing technology, quickening the pace of play, strengthening player relations, and creating a more unified business operation.

The current MLB commissioner started to adjust the pace of play by incorporating new rules during the 2015 season and many diehard baseball fans were very displeased. Manfred tried to speed up the pace by having batters remain in the batter’s box and installed time clocks to limit the time spent around commercial breaks.

On Thursday The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported that there has been a new pace-of-play proposal.
