Re: Poll: Do you think a different ball is needed for 300 foot fields?
I mean, wouldn’t a mat be a signal to the umpires that the conference doesn’t trust their ability to do their job? I’m fine with the idea, but I don’t see any top teams that may believe that they can sway calls signing off on this. The other teams that believe that the strike zone tends to get smaller as the game goes on will be all for it. But I still don’t think it’d be a good message to send to the umpires, even though their job would get easier.
