Why Do Baseball Games Start So Late? Baseball games start late due to time zone differences. If you are on the east coast and your favorite team is playing on the west coast, this will cause a 7:00 pm game (on the west coast) to start at 10:00 pm in your eastern time zone.
The time between innings and pitching changes is 2 minutes, 5 seconds for local broadcasts, 2 minutes, 25 seconds for nationally televised games and 2 minutes, 55 seconds for tiebreaker and postseason games.
