Why don’t we play 7-Inning games at all levels of baseball? High School, College and Professional:Universal Baseball with Seven Inning Games
Isn’t this a change that should be made???
Universal Baseball with 7-inning games at all levels….
Have the home team bat in the bottom of the 7th, even if the home team is leading and the fans will get a full seven innings of baseball….Only down an inning and a-half of what they would get at the old nine-inning games, when you only played 8 and a-half, if the home team was leading going into the bottom of the ninth…
This sure would speed up the games, although I’m sure the players and the managers would still find a way to slow them down….
Fans could stay for the entire game instead going home on a night after the 7th Inning Stretch, when you are playing on past 10pm….
How about these 7-inning games at all levels of baseball???
We might be changing or messing with the history of baseball, but sometimes change is good and it might a good thing for the fans that really want to stick around and watch the full/entire game….
What about the records??? With shorter games, the players and especially the pitchers might get a chance to extend their careers and we could see a younger brand of baseball fans headed out to the ballparks….
This would pick up the pace and give baseball a chance to catch up with the changing times….
Baseball is trying to find a new identity and fans might identify more with the game if it didn’t last so long on a given night/day…..
You would be afforded a chance to start games a little later, say maybe at 7:30 and this would give families a chance to get home and get things in order and then get out/head to the ballpark for the 7:30 start and this would still allow time for the minor league teams to have the darkness they need, in to get their firework shows in on the weekends…
How do you see this move/change???
Too strong, or do you feel the games are too long?????
This would also allow the players and coaches to get home before midnight and if you like to watch an occasional game on TV, you could sit back and enjoy the entire 7-inning contest….
How does this move/change sit with you????
Should I go ahead and book my visit to the commissioner’s office?
