MLB’s new pitch clock

“The pitch clock is wonderful for Major League Baseball,” says Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle about the new device implemented to speed up the game amid a ratings slump, after a spring training game between the Boston Red Sox and the Atlanta Braves ended with a batter violation of the pitch clock. “The only thing, I think, that we have to take a look at, that’s going to be really interesting, is who does it have more of an impact on: The pitcher or the batter? I think the batter at first. I think it will all get ironed out during the course of the year, but I think the batter. The first couple months of Major League Baseball, April and May, it's going to be interesting to watch that dynamic.
