I respectfully disagree. The pitch clock seems strange as


it should be to the pitcher's advantage to work quickly because the shorter the time between pitches, the harder it is for the batter to adjust to changes in speed. I saw a science experiment on TV about 30 years ago where they showed (using moving lights and a "batter" pressing when to swing) that the batter had difficulty adjusting to different speeds up to a certain time, and then didn't. The idea was the memory of the prior "pitch" affected reaction time to a different speed, but that at some point that memory faded. Interesting study.

I think the harder part would be to control batters stepping out - not sure they have a "clock" answer for that.
