Pitch Clocks to be tested in Double-A and Triple-A in 2015 Season



Major League Baseball tested several initiatives to improve the pace of the game during the Arizona Fall League last fall. While the specifics still getting ironed out, Baseball America reports on Thursday that more tests will follow in Double-A and Triple-A this upcoming season. Especially the 20-second pitch clock, which already is in use in international softball tournaments, is one of the major items on the list. MLB will pay for the installation of the clocks, while the Minor League clubs cover the costs for the operators. Additionally operators and umpires receive training on the clock.

    NCAA D-I baseball has, for several years, enforced a count of 20 seconds between pitches and 90 seconds from last fielder leaving the field to first pitch of next half inning. While it may seem a challenge to pitchers, it is actually not a difficult adjustment.

    Whether this will appreciably affect fan interest is another question, altogether.
