Every season since 2016, the average length of a Major League Baseball game has been at least three hours long. In 2022, it was three hours and three minutes.

In 2021, the average game length was 3:10, which is the longest in MLB history. 

Many fans feel that’s just too long, which is why MLB has introduced a new pitch clock system for the 2023 season.

As a result, baseball games should play faster and end sooner.
