New rules for the 2017 season have been set.

On Thursday morning, the MLB and MLBPA have officially announced the rule changes that will go into effect beginning in 2017. Nothing too drastic, but certainly an effort to speed up the pace of play.

In 2016, the average length of a MLB game was roughly three hours and four minutes…which was up four minutes from the 2015 season. Other theories on how to speed up the game haven’t gone over well with some. It could very well be affecting the popularity of baseball and attendance issues throughout the league.

For now, here are the baby steps the league plans to take. Will more rules or rule adjustments come down in the future?

Only “time”…will tell.
