2. Is there any interest from sponsors/players to go back to a mat for balls and strikes? Seems like a lot of complaints on calls/no calls. I know it's been mentioned that people can throw balls that hit the mat and don't cross the plate, but you could still make the rule that it has to cross the plate as well as land on the mat.
3. They already bat test in the conference so this might be irrelavent to the convention, but I think bat testing at every level should be mandatory. We have a decent amount of C/B teams in the region and it is anything but safe when guys shoot box with their 2 year old fire flex that tests at 190.
