Throwing Period

Question

Guest Coach Chris

May an assistant coach hit balls to players for infield drills during the throwing period time of the preseason? Middle school baseball Alabama.

Players will only be receiving hit balls from coach. They themselves will not be hitting.

 

League coach for 8 years moving up to middle school. Looking for clarification.

Preseason dates. Jan.7th "Throwing Period" Jan. 28th "Full Practice"

ASHAA guidelines state that player have only balls and gloves in use. No organized batting practice. All of which i understand. The coach would be hitting balls to players. No players would be hitting.

This is a question for an ASHAA state rules interpreter, who is the final authority for those state-specific regulations.

We do have some AL umpires in the forum, but their opinions are not authoritative: you could follow their advice and still get in trouble with the state.

I encourage you to contact the state office with this question.

It's on page 5 and it says prior to regular team practice. Maven gives you the correct advice for getting your  answer. 

 

(My mind says infield practice is part of regular team practice.)
