There’s a New Pace-of-Play Problem: Traffic in the Outfield

Baseball Is Fun

An in-between inning promotion at the Astros/Cardinals Spring Training game yesterday resulted in a new pace-of-play problem for Commissioner Rob Manfred to address: traffic.

Watch as this car gets stuck trying to exit through the outfield wall, before finally giving up and driving all the way across the outfield to the other gate.

I’m dying of slow-burning laughter:

Maybe, in addition to mound visits, the league can institute car-pooling minimums to help keep the number of cars on the field to a minimum.

With any luck, in a few years, we might even have as little as no cars on the baseball field! Wouldn’t that be something?
