2009 World Series and ALCS Earlier Start Times

If you actually have to get up for work early in the morning (who doesn’t?), you know the difficulty with trying to stay up to watch playoff baseball in October. Finally, it looks like we may get some solice, at least to last until the 7th inning, as the start times for weeknight ALCS and World Series games have been moved up to 7:57PM, instead of the typical 8:30PM start.

Bug Selig was available to state the obvious:

“Our goal is to schedule games to allow the largest number of people to watch, and this change puts our games in the window we believe will work the best for our fans,” baseball commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement. “I expect that fans of all ages will respond favorably to this adjustment.”

Finally a fan-friendly decision from MLB! I’m looking forward to it.
