Milwaukee Brewers introduce $1,000 timeless ticket

The Milwaukee Brewers of Major League Baseball (MLB) have introduced a rather unique marketing ploy be selling fans something called a timeless ticket for the price of $1,000 per ducat. In theory, the ticket, which is actually a small brass statue, can be bought from the club and be used at any future game the buyer chooses. For example, this means it could be used next week or 50 years down the road. The ticket is good for any home game at Miller Park, including the playoffs and opening day.

The team is also giving out a nine-game ticket voucher with the purchase of a timeless ticket. However, these nine tickets are good for regular season contests only and opening day is excluded. Those fans who have bought a timeless ticket just need to get hold of the organization’s ticket office when they’d like to redeem it. The customer needs to show photo ID and let the ticket office know which game they’d like to attend.

MLB to introduce 20-second pitch clock in the Minors

Major League Baseball has let it be known that it’s trying to find a way to speed up games and will be testing out one way of doing it by using a 20-second pitch clock in the minor leagues starting in 2015. MLB has been holding discussions with the league’s players’ union to try to come up with some solutions to put an end to three-hour plus games in the league. Fox Sports has reported that the pitch clock will be introduced at the Double A and Triple A level to test it out.

However, the league has already tried out the 20-second pitch clock among several other time-saving changes this offseason in the Arizona Fall League. According to Fox, the coaches and players who have been interviewed said the pitch clock was pretty effective and it didn’t disrupt the flow of the ball games. This is good news for MLB as the average length of nine-inning baseball games has been getting longer year after year for the past few seasons.

The last time it happened was back in 1955 and the first time it took place was in 1947. The most players voted into the hall of fame was five, which happened in 1936 when it originally opened. Each player needs to receive a minimum of 75 per cent of the available 549 votes to be inducted.

50 game suspension for Mets prospect L.J. Mazzilli

All Major League Baseball players know that they may have to take a drug test sooner or later and this includes Minor Leaguer’s too. However, some of them simply don’t have the willpower or intestinal fortitude to just say no to drugs. It’s hard to believe that players are still failing these tests even though their careers may depend on them. Meet L.J. Mazzilli, the latest ball player to be hit with a major suspension. Mazzilli is a prospect of the New York Mets and son of former MLB player and manager Lee Mazzilli.
