MLB games could be lengthened by replay
As if major league games aren't long enough already, now there will be replay delays. Sometime before the end of the regular season, Major League Baseball will start allowing umpires to review video to determine boundary calls on home runs, such as whether they cleared fences or went by the foul pole in fair territory. The average time of a nine-inning game this season is 2 hours, 50 minutes, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. In the postseason, it's usually midnight madness. Many games start at 8:30 p.m. EDT and nine-inning contests stretch on for an average of 3:26.
