    He probably got tossed because of this. It sounds like the SS caught the ball. If she recorded an out the runner should have not been given first. She should have still been hitting. If she did indeed reach first safely then the IP was negated and the offensive coach just chose to take the result of the play.

    This was proposed about 4-5 years ago in ASA and went no where. If I remember correctly, it received little support from the JO and player's committees

    I wonder if the NCAA adapting the new rule will help generate support in the other committees. Otherwise you are still going to end up with a lot of illegal pitchers arriving at the college level. If umpires at 12U, 14U and 16U would start calling IPs the number of pitchers doing it would drop dramatically.

    Its going to depend on if the NCAA umpires actually start calling illegal pitches. If they just continue as they have in the past, not sure any other organizations would change the rule if it makes no difference in the enforcement.
