  1. I saw this morale patch elsewhere, but thought it was completely appropriate for some of our members.

  2. I had a pitcher pitch the ball, then run in and grab a bat and hit the pitch over the fence, but the pitcher ran back out past the fence to make the catch. Or, maybe that was a bugs bunny short.

  3. This, 100%!!!!! I wish more coaches across the board would have this philosophy, then maybe we wouldn't be hemorrhaging officials. I grow tired of coaches hinging on every pitch, and holding us to MLB umpire performance. The best coach I ever saw was at a 14u travel tournament my son was playing in Nevada. The opposing teams coaches barely paid any attention to the game. The 3 of them just kind of talked with themselves and only occasionally said words of encouragement to their team. They were one of the most fundamentally sound team I've ever seen. The kids just played and knew what to d

  4. Well...it's more like one ump may agree...and about 175 would not - in my experience, outside of white/green/yellow I've never seen colour factor into an umpire's decision to what a pitcher can and can't wear...but, yes, as stated above, if your daughter is distracted she can tell her coach, and her coach (whether or not that's you) can discuss with the ump...and if it becomes problematic, get clarification from the league. I'm sure this will sound harsh, but if I was the coach, your daughter would be told to deal with it...focus on the ball...the big green thing in the pitcher's hand. W

  5. Tonight I was involved in what to now has been the most awesome play I've officiated. What's yours? If only someone was taping it... LL minors and doing it solo. There are two outs and runners on in a close game so both sides' stands are making a lot of noise. The batter hits the ball straight up. I look up and take a couple of steps back to make room for the catcher. The catcher, in following the ball, has fallen straight back onto his back where I was setup and while doing so, stretched out his glove and makes the catch as he is hitting the ground. The catcher and I lock eyes

  6. If you are the head coach, you can bring it up, or take it to the league to have some clarification across all teams. If you are the parent, then you can (should) do neither of the above, but you could volunteer to bring more snacks.

  11. Keep in mind, what is or isn't distracting is entirely the umpire's judgment...as opposed to the batter's excuse, which I see more often than not. As a long-time coach of club level fastpitch across multiple rule sets in both Canada and the US, red/pink kinese tape would RARELY be deemed as distracting, unless it had glitter or was otherwise reflective in some way. The colour itself is very rarely a factor in what is "distracting". Otherwise, you'd have to start banning certain uniform colours (like neon pink) as distracting - it just isn't done. It typically only comes into play when
