In the past three years any found minor problems were caught early on and corrected. But almost every weekend I have players tell me that teams are cheating on their stats yet when asked for a specific example so I can go and look at the video or the opposing teams book suddenly no evidence is given.
The most interesting case was the year Dennis Rulli won the batting title playing for Suncoast. He had an onbase percentage of like .822
People around the league said they were fudging the stats. So I painstakingly went to every team they played that year and asked that team to send me a picture of their book when they played Rulli.
I put it all in a spreadsheet. Turns out he had one less onbase than his team had turned in so he hit .820 and still won the batting title. But to hear the opposition during the year say how they were cheating you would have thought he was actually hitting .700
So in the conference all you have to do is send me an anonymous tip on what team is cheating and which tournament they cheated in and I can easily go back and verify their stats.
As it is I do spot checks on each team each year.
Does that mean cheating doesn't happen. No it doesn't. But it means cheating can easily be caught and the penalty will be a loss of awards and possibly a points deduction. We can even go back to past years and correct stats if you know someone was cheating.
