1 thought on “Why is a Major League Baseball season so long?

  1. One other reason why a baseball season is so long:

    — in baseball a batter bats only four or five times in an average game and each team has only around 40 at-bats
    — in [NFL] gridiron each team makes 60-70 snaps with all the best players playing
    — in basketball each team has around 200 possessions

    — in [Australian Rules] football each team has around 400 possessions per game

    Consequently, to get a 50 percent skill-to-luck ratio, only five [Australian Rules] football games are needed, but 69 Major League Baseball games. Or, in other words, one game of [Australian Rules] football tells you as much about a team’s skill as fourteen games of baseball!
