Re: Is it time for Utrip to move to BYO balls
Supply your own ball will not work at the Conference level. It would add probably 20-30 minutes per game. Every foul ball, every home run the ball has to come from the dugout, to the umpire, then out to the pitcher. That doesn't even get into the cheating aspect. There will be teams that doctor balls, especially since it's not something that can be tested easily. They may be throwing in a Stadium when they need a HR then a pillow once they are out of them. Both teams need to hit the same balls, pulled out of the same bucket.
