Re: FL Duel Turned Into A Back Yard BBQ on Sat Instead of a Conf Event
I can understand a batter stepping out if a strike is called that they didn't believe was one so they can reset mentally and maybe change their approach. What kills me is when the batter steps out out 2-0(3-1) count knowing they are taking 90% of the time. That wastes at least 10-15 minutes a game. There were several times this weekend that the 5 seconds wasn't called on the pitcher. Reason was, the umpire thought it was 10 seconds! lol
And yes, I would vote on the pitcher not going to 1st on a walk as well.
