8th Inning As Extra Innings.


Recommended Posts

M watching  (ok, I watched, since the game just ended) the Giants and Nationals game.   Second game of a double header.   It really tweaks my mind hearing the 8th inning be called an extra inning.  

 

They need to go back to games being 9 innings and drop the man on 2nd to start extra innings.

They need to find ways to get back to 2 hour 20 minutes games. These 3+ hour 9 inning games are ridiculous.

So the 7th inning stretch is now the walk to the parking lot?

 

Double header games are now 7 innings.

Why bother…they should just play one. Wouldn’t want the players missing their naps and getting cranky.

It's not the players.  Apparently the commissioners office thinks games need to be faster and higher scoring to make them more exciting.   I can't think of many things more exciting than a 0-0 game going into the 9th inning.
