Although they’re just Spring Training games right now, this weekend officially kicked off the 2023 baseball season. And with the start of the new year, the new MLB changes are officially in place. These include larger bases, a restriction on the shift in the infield, and the pitch clock, which has been a hot topic already around baseball.
With the new rules finally in motion, the official game time for the Dodgers’ first spring training game was just 2 hours and 21 minutes. Game two came in at 2:54, but that was a slugfest that saw LA explode for 9 runs over the Cubs.
After the first game, we asked LA fans what they think about the new changes to the beloved game of baseball. The general consensus? People are not big fans of the new rules.
Here’s a sneak peek into the behind-the-scenes action that goes into implementing just one of the new rules: the pitch timer.
