Sorry that this is off topic (non-LL situation), but I thought I'd ask hear since we have a lot of "rules gurus" here.
I'm getting this question/situation second hand and it just doesn't sound right. An on deck batter was apparently timing their warm-up swings with the pitcher's warm-up pitches. An umpire told the coach, his on-deck batter was not allowed to do this. Does this make sense???? If we have a legal on-deck batter in a safe place swinging their bat, do we need to worry about how or when they are swinging their bats?
Are there any baseball/softball organizations that prohibit an on-deck batter from timing their swing with the pitcher?
Thanks for your help!
