About the 15-second pitch clock...

Quote
At a Low-A game between Rancho Cucamonga and San Jose in August, three high-ranking Major League Baseball officials sat in the stands and watched the league’s experimental playing rules unfold in real time.

Senior vice president of minor league operations and development Peter Woodfork and senior vice presidents of on-field operations Michael Hill and Raul Ibañez sat about a dozen rows behind home plate at Rancho Cucamonga’s LoanMart Field. They watched as Rancho Cucamonga and San Jose completed a nine-inning game in 2 hours, 28 minutes. The night before, they saw Lake Elsinore and Inland Empire finish a game in 2:24. Both games were played with a 15-second pitch clock, which was implemented in Low-A West earlier in the season.
That will make the game more enjoyable!
