    How Much Action In a Typical 3-Hr ML Baseball Game ?

    WSJ had an interesting article about how much action time is observed for a typical baseball game: about 18-minutes in a typical 3-hr game, or about 10%.

    Downtime:
    Time bt pitches: 1:14:49
    Time bt batters: 33:39
    Time bt innings: 42:41


    "....What's the bottom line? When we compare total action to total down time容ven including debatable action such as pitches, trots and pickoff throws葉otal action time is 17:58. The average game time was 2 hours and 58 seconds, so the action portion of a typical game is 10%. That leaves 90% of the game as down time...."

    This might actually be one of the things I like about baseball. You can turn on a game, clean the house, surf the web, go outside for a little while, etc. It's great to have on in the background on a lazy summer day.

    I like studying the Catcher's signals and predicting what he's calling and the placement.

    Exactly. Rarely do you ever watch every pitch intently. When you are home you can do whatever, its great in the background. At the ballpark is a relaxed atmosphere, much different than a football game.

    Love baseball, even though it is completely different from my other favorite sports - college football and college basketball.

    If you google "amount of action in a football game" a WSJ article from 2010 appears and claims the NFL has 11 minutes of action. I guess we should just watch bball or hockey.

    More time to drink beer, eat hot dogs, and look at the hot women in the stands.

    Action and baseball are the last two words I would put in the same sentence. The difference between football and baseball is the difference between a summer blockbuster and an Academy Award winner.

    My favorite thing about baseball? It is timeless. It really is never over until it's over. You can be down 11 runs in the ninth inning and still have a chance to come all the way back and win. Try coming back from 17 down in the final two minutes of a football game.

    How much action in a typical soccer match: The 2 seconds when they score the one goal.

    I'd say about 80 minutes minimum, the ball is in play.
