(AP) — Play ball! But not too fast. Everything might seem to be speeding up in 21st century, but not the World Series. When the Cardinals and Red Sox met in the 1967 series, the average length of the seven games was 2 hours, 22 minutes. All four World Series games this season have clocked in at over three hours, including last night's at 3:34. It's not just the TV commercials. Hitters step out of the box for 20 or 30 seconds. Pitchers get the ball and toe the rubber. Boston pitcher Jon Lester isn't upset by the longer games, though. He says two heavyweights are "going at it and it's going to take some time." The series is tied at 2 games apiece.
