That's the beauty of baseball - there's no time limit. You play 9 innings, no matter how long it takes. Of course, there are rules about how long the batter is allowed to be out of the box between pitches, and how long a pitcher can take before he pitches, but those are seldom followed. Most baseball games (excluding playoffs due to TV) can run 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Actual game time in a nine inning game is 15-17 minutes.
