We played in our first 10u tournament this weekend. We encountered a couple of umps that were calling an expanded strike zone with first year pitchers/teams. The first ump didn't tell us before the game, we had to figure it out on the fly. The second ump at least gave us a heads up before the game started. I have been working with my daughter on getting her to read the pitches and not swing at the high or low ones. All that went out the window and she struck out looking with really low and high pitches. In the second game she also took two strikes before she walked. Basically shins to chin was a strike. It did make the game a little more interesting as the girls had to swing at just about everything unless it was in the dirt or over their head. It kept the game from being a walk fest. I worried that it will induce bad habits chasing bad pitches that will have to be unlearned as they advance into 12u. Thoughts?
