Would be nice if there was information in the thread about the actual rules instead of just pejoratives about GKR

Major League Baseball continues to implement new rules to increase the pace-of-play, so the game can move at a more steady pace. While the pitch clock and batter having to keep one foot in the batter's box have aided in speeding the game up, the MLB has now issued a mandate limiting the amount of mound visits for each team.

Mound visits will be capped at six per game. The definition of a mound visit was specified by the MLB in an official announcement.

"A manager or coach trip to the mound to meet with the pitcher shall constitute a visit," the statement read. "A player leaving his position to confer with the pitching, inlcuding a pitcher leaving the mound to confer with another player, shall also constitute a mound visit, regardless of where the visit occurs or the length of the visit..."

So, catchers running up to converse with the pitcher will count as a mound visit. That is why Mets manager Mickey Callaway will make it a priority for his pitchers and catchers to always have good communication.

Which means after the fifth pitcher, pitching changes have to be screamed from the dugout.

Pretty sure that juicing the crap out of the ball has done a hell of a lot more to lengthen games than mound visits have.

Oh joy. More reasons for old men to yell at clouds.

Are there games where managers make more than six mound visits? Assuming we're not counting an actual pitching change as a mound visit or you can make pitching changes from the dugout, to me this is a whole bunch of nothing. I can't imagine they'd forgo pitching changes in extra innings cause some manager used his allotment of mound visits.

I'm not even old and this is stupid as hell. The game is fine. Cut down commercials if you want to slice gametimes. But they won't.

Extra innings you get a visit per inning. Pitching changes don’t count, but catcher visits and PC visits count.

No one will be making pitching changes from the dugout.
