During the Arizona Fall League this year, pitch clocks were implemented. As of this today, it is unclear exactly how the rule will be implemented. When the clock hits zero, a ball is called. There are also rumors that the time between innings rule is going to be enforced and so is the one foot in the batters box.
I’m going to hold off judgement about the rule until we see it implemented. The majority of me hates the rule. Baseball is fundamentally different from other sports because there is no clock. There is a poetic flow of the game that makes it so different from other sports. At the same time, it feels like Mets game take forever now (although I feel that is more a result of how the last couple of managers have handled the bullpen switching pitchers, not pitch clocks).
I guess we’ll see what comes out from the Owner’s Meetings.
