A lot of people don't understand/ fully appreciate the game within the game. Every pitch is a chess match and then the waste pitches to set up a pitch later in the game or the next at bat.that scene is what makes baseball the single greatest game in the world.
also a ten second clock would basically mean the pitcher can’t shake the catcher off.
Then everything that the fielders are doing even if the ball isn't hit to them. Relay throws that are executed perfectly are some of greatest plays.
It's the best sport around but not everyone sees/understands the intricacies and that's fine to each their own.
