Itís not right for a pitcher to spend hours and hours practicing their pitching only to get to a tournament where every pitching rubber has a 6Ē crater in front. Dd has been working on strong and balanced drive. When she gets to tournament steps on the rubber puts hands together and pulls drive foot up into pushback position at this point she looks like a weeble wobble ďtelling my ageĒ. I told her if she is unbalanced and feels that falling feeling just continue back with her drive foot and act like she didnít just start the pitch. She is real smooth with it. But Iím thinking this is illegal once the hands have gone together. Can I get someone to clarify if this is illegal. She has only had to do it once in a game and the ump just stood up and waited as she wiped her forehead and stepped right back on the plate.
