Re: Is it time for Utrip to move to BYO balls
As an umpire there is no way a ball is going into play that I haven't handled. It is a liability issue, as it would be to you if you knowingly pitched a ball that was out of spec and someone got hurt. At the Conference level that ball is not going be let into the dugout to be held until the next inning, too many possible issues. The defense or coach swaps out balls, or the ball goes missing.
