Re: Rule Change 2022
So was the intent of having a runner for the pitcher, for the pitcher to be able to get his battle gear on and not hold up the game? If thats the case, maybe they should enforce batters thinking they need to walk halfway down the base line, take 2-3 swings, adjust their batting gloves AGAIN, a couple of stretches, scout where the defensive players moved to since the last pitch, and then step into the box, all still with one hand up asking for time, and then tell the umpire when THEY are ready. And yes, this is fresh in my mind because I saw alot of the women doing it during A Worlds yesterday.
