    intentional walk little league

    An intentional walk is described as plate appearance, and not an "At Bat" . If the rules call for each player to have an "at bat", or play in so many innings, how is this possible if one batter is walked every time he comes to the plate? I know there is a lot of opinions on this being used, but it is sad to see this happen. It may not effect the the batters batting avg. But it does take away his chance to have a HR,or RBI etc. Plus its little league,and supposed to be about fair play. The last 10 out of 12 times to the plate the teams have walked him,or bean him to keep there pitch count low. Yes that was done. It would seem you would want the kids to bat, and put the ball in play,rather than walk one kid every time its his turn to bat. And the sad part is, the IBB is used to load the bases for maybe a force out etc. But this is being done when no one is one,and any time of the game, no matter what the score is. Mostly its all about winning to the teams that do this. And one last question, how many managers and coaches, asst. coaches, base coaches, and person recording the book, can be outside the dugout in a LL game? Thanks.
