First, baseball got the no-pitch intentional walk. Then, the number of mound visits were limited. What might be next on Rob Manfred’s agenda to speed up pace-of-play? It turns out his efforts only affect about one-quarter of baseball fans.
A surprising 74.4% of those polled stated that baseball games were not too long. As always, there are some measures to take into consideration when interpreting the results of the polls. Since those signed up for FanPulse are likely to be big fans of baseball, the results are likely to be more skewed than the average fan. Manfred is trying to grow the game to the average American who might feel baseball is too long.
