Baseball has received plenty of flack from casual fans saying the game is too long while die-hard fans like it the way it is.
While the MLB is making some changes, college baseball remains the same without a pitching clock.
With that said, maybe college baseball should consider a change too after a division three game somehow lasted for 24 hours.
That’s right. According to ESPN, two schools, Denison and Arcadia, played a contest that basically turned into a long Quidditch match. At one point, they took a six-hour postponement to continue playing the next day.
On top of that, the final score totaled 48 runs. This has to be one of the most bizarre college baseball games in recent history.
Yes, you're reading those numbers correctly 😅

In the end, Denison was able to finally run away with scoring two runs after the delay.

I don’t know about you but I would’ve left well before the five-hour mark of the game. I know this is a rare occurrence but let’s get a pitch clock in college baseball, yeah?
Oh well. At least Denison was able to pull out with a win. Imagine being Arcadia and playing that long just to suffer a loss by two runs. Also, are the pitchers okay? 14 pitchers is a lot.
Hopefully, both teams have enough depth for their upcoming matchups. But hey, shoutout to both college baseball teams for going through the grind!
