Mike Hargrove attained the nickname "The Human Rain Delay" for his deliberate routine at the plate before each at-bat and before each pitch. He drove pitchers crazy by stepping out of the batter's box after each pitch and starting his routine, which consisted of (1) adjusting his helmet, (2) adjusting his batting glove, making sure it was tight on his hand and especially the thumb, (3) pulling each sleeve on his uniform up about an inch, and (4) wiping each hand on his uniform pants - and then sometimes repeating the whole process again - before finally settling back into the box.

Games take longer now than in 1970, probably for a few reasons. More and longer commercial breaks. Batters seeing more pitches. The addition of the DH. Teams using more relievers more often.

I think average game time of 3 hours is pretty damn good.  Nobody gets pissed off at the NFL for 3 hour games.

For a 3 hour game:
NFL - 11 minutes of action
MLB - 18 minutes of action

The real question is if you could make it hurt?  And we all know the answer is a resounding NO.....unless hurting your knuckles counts

Pitch clock at the minor game was no big deal and I think had no real impact on the game.
