MLB made several rule changes last year. As a result the average game time dropped by 20 minutes to 2 hours and 42 minutes in 2023, marking the lowest duration since 1984, and making the game a lot more interesting.

Will this trend continue, stabilize or revert in the 2024 season? If average game time is 2 hours and 42 minutes ot mo, this market resolves to no.

Resolution will be based on reported stats including post season such as https://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/majors/misc.shtml and https://www.statista.com/statistics/1310998/mlb-game-length/

I may adjust resolution date as needed based on availability of reliable reports.
