Infographic: Sudden Death

Here’s an interesting twist on the game: what if every game was played as if it were in extra innings right from the start?  That is, what if the winner was determined according to who scored first (with equal opportunities on offense, of course).  Craig Robinson explored this question, and what follows is a look at how the 2013 season would have shaped up had it been played by these rules.

    Interesting concept.

  2. This is quite a study. Well done. Now, please don’t let any of the MLB decision-makers see this. They’ll add it to their hare-brained idea list to “speed up the game.”
