What I was pointing out more that was new to me was the instructor just this weekend telling us to do it.

you had said no new guidance.. well my own recent interaction was just that 

a change in directive from what I am used to.

just reporting what I observed boss... 

That's a very different viewpoint ... a comment like this would have helped:  "interesting, I wasn't aware of this before and have never really heard it until this postseason" ....    THAT is a very different view than what you were portraying above.   It's all good, and I'm not your boss ;)

More on topic ....

I do locate pitches under certain circumstances.  Typically the closer the pitch, or the CLOSER IT MAY LOOK from the dugouts, the more I'll locate.   Obvious sky-high pitches or pitches in the dirt, ....you know what I mean .... that does not get located... (no need)

My favorite is the 0-2 pitch when the catcher sets up WAY outside to get the kid to go fishing, and the pitcher NAILS the glove, but it's about a foot outside ... whack!  "THAT'S OUTSIDE!!!!"   crowd: "ooohhhhhhhhhhhh!" :D  Then the catcher looks up and says ... "I love it when they think that pitch is a strike" ...

It the umps have been doing this, it's just that the directors and the guys with the microphones are doing a much better job of putting it on the TV feeds.

There's no "if" here... and typically yes, ... the post season of anything CWS and MLB playoffs, with more media coverage, hot mics etc .... yes, you're more apt to hear this during these settings as opposed to a regular season televised game on some random Wednesday night.
