Former commish Selig: Baseball determined to cut game times

MILWAUKEE (AP) Former baseball commissioner Bud Selig still would like to cut down the time it takes to play a game.

The average length of time for a nine-inning game was 3 hours, 44 seconds this year, down from 3:05:11 in 2017. Games have gradually taken longer since 2005, when the average length was 2:46.

Speaking before Game 6 of the NL Championship Series on Friday night, Selig said 2:45 would be an ideal length.
