The data is already pretty astounding. The average time of the first 19 spring training games this year was 2-hours and 36-minutes. The average time of spring training games last year was 3-hours and 1-minute. That means, thanks to the pitch clock, games have been 25 minutes(!) quicker on average.
Cal Conley of the Atlanta Braves thought he had just won the game with a two-out, full-count, bases-loaded walk-off walk on Saturday. He took a few steps toward first base, bat still in hand, when umpire John Libka jumped out from behind the plate and indicated strike three.
