You need 2 dingers that are at least 425ft, most of his early HRs were under that.

I don't think they actually have to wait for them to land. Frazier was cranking them while the previous ones were still in the air

That's what they said the rules are. The ump has his hand up to tell the pitcher when to pitch. But they probably didn't enforce it.

Home field advantage.

That was great watching the Cubs embarrass themselves on the national stage. Time to start drinking harder.

He still had 30 seconds of bonus time, so it's pretty much a moot point.

What were the original extension rules that they changed because of weather? Didn't they add so much time for each ball hit however far?

Well, I was pulling for Donaldson, but 9 probably won't be enough to take down Frazier.

It was if a HR was hit in the last minute or two the clock stopped if I remember correctly.
