"....What's the bottom line? When we compare total action to total down time—even including debatable action such as pitches, trots and pickoff throws—total 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...."

I like going to an occasional MLB game. Liked the old Miller Park in milwaukee......college-type tailgating.
Also been to the new Miller Park. Not a lot connection to the actual game of baseball. In addition to the "down" time, if you sit in the corporate seats below near the dugouts, you're dealing with grandparents with their spoiled grandkid who don't give a flying fu- about the actual game..
These families fidget ad nauseum , buying concessions constantly, kids running round. The park has all these amenities...and these people watch about 10 minutes of the actual game.....annoying as h#ll
