1. How can you not test bats? Over heard the UIC say its logistical but yet WSL pulls 200 teams and manages to test! You dont have to keep the bats in a bucket just put a hologram sticker on them and have the umps check before each game! Literally saw a text about a team BRAGGING they just bought a fresh batch of shaved bats for the worlds! Unreal!
2. Umpires calling and enforcing different rules each game! Some umpires enforcing back foot past the plate others saying its ok as long as you’re in the box I mean seriously get on the same page!
3. Had a pitcher get hit tonight, yes he stayed in game, however the umpire asked the UIC to test and he refused! We were told umpires had full discretion to text a bat.
Im done best of luck to the teams still in it!
