  1. Here is what the rules writers say on the language: Situation 12: At the plate conference, the home team head coach provides to the plate umpire three baseballs. The plate umpire notices that while the baseballs have the NFHS Authenticating Mark, they do not have the SEI/NOCSAE mark.

Official Interpretation: Umpires are to consider this a distraction to bother the umpire and the hitter. It is up to the UIC to correct this before continuing the contest.
