How much has it really changed? Pitchers still throw off a mound and toward home plate, where the batters are still standing 60 feet, 6 inches away. They still have four balls for a walk, three strikes for an out and three outs in an inning.
Parks have gotten smaller, in some cases. Players have gotten bigger in others. But the game itself really isn't terribly different.
How we measure the game has changed, but the game itself is much the same.
