One of the new rule changes in Major League Baseball this season is the introduction of a pitch clock.

In his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson explains how he believes this attempt to speed up games goes against the essence of the National Pastime.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, the author of Growing Up With Clemente and the editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
