MLB Contemplates Shorter Doubleheaders

 

Major League Baseball is debating whether to play shorter doubleheaders this season. The players’ association is surveying its members and deciding whether to propose two seven-inning games, or one nine-inning game followed by one seven-inning contest.

MLB is expected to decide by Saturday whether to go with shorter doubleheaders. Philadelphia and Toronto are scheduled to play a doubleheader that day.
