There are 18 minutes of total action in a baseball game

Baseball is a game of standing. While you may not agree with that statement, the numbers do not lie. Studies found that roughly 90% of a given baseball game is spent standing. They also found that in the total length of a baseball game, from start to finish, there is roughly 18 minutes of action. That means that per inning, there is only 2 minutes of action, with 1 minute going to each team batting.
