The Wall Street Journal did a time breakdown analysis of a typical Major League Baseball broadcast, and found that a nine-inning game actually generates about 14 minutes of real-time game action.That’s still more than the 11 minutes of game action in a typical NFL game that a WSJ experiment uncovered last year. The rest was of the coverage was about 10 minutes of replays, 2-3 minutes of coaches in the dugout and 88 minutes of players standing around waiting for the next pitch.
And all of that was wrapped around 42 minutes of commercials for beer and high definition TV to watch more baseball on.
