In the MLB the reason for the game to start five (5) minutes after the hour is due to the fact that the umpire has to collect the line up cards from the coach's ... the coach's as will as the team do not have to take the field till the HOUR of play ... the umpire is allotted this time to collect the line up cards ... when both coach's have gone back to the dug outs from there home plate meeting with the umpire the umpire will call PLAY BALL and the FIRST pitch will be thrown ...
