ErichKeane Posted May 29, 2022 Report Share Posted May 29, 2022 End of an inning today (weekend tourney, OBR rules), I checked a pitcher's glove (noticed mid-way through the inning), and confirmed that the laces on the glove were in act quite white. I told F1 to get a new glove for the next inning. A little complaining from the coach as he is one of the only 2 lefties on the field, so had to swap with a fielder! During the other half of the inning, they apparently went to the site director, who called the "head umpire", who decided that 'the white/grey rule only counts for the leather, not the laces', and came to the field to let me know before the pitcher finished warming up before the next inning. He's a very experienced ump, and a better ump than me, so I figured I must have misremembered the rule. I went with it, and wasn't particularly bothered by it, but I confirmed my understanding with 3.07 after the game. Just a little grumpy/venting 😕 Otherwise, I got a bunch of made-up rules from a coach today who insisted his way was the right way and the way 'in the book', "I'm not arguing, but you got that call wrong!" that I was glad to find out after that I got wrong (U3k where the catcher/batter come together at the plate, time-limit for 'no new inning after' is when the 3rd out is made, 1 other I forget at the moment...). Anyway, 4 more tomorrow, but a fairly eventful day today! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
