I understand that the girls are only 10 years old and they are still learning but when you are playing a high bselect or a select team and they do not know a illegely pitch and will not correct their pitchers from the illegal pitches it is ashame. We played a touranament in Carrollton Ga this weekend it was USSSA sanction touranment and all I saw was pitchers taking the sign off of the mound stepping up on the mound not presenting the ball and pitching. they were real close to doing walk thrus our batters could not pick up the ball in the pitchers hand or barelly had time to get in box. The first day we complained and they called a few illegal pitches and tried to correct the girls but the next day they let us know they was not going to call any bad pitches or going to correct the girls. The worst team down there was The BIRMINGHAM THUNDERBOLTS they said that it was legal to do that and they done it everywhere they would not correct their girls and They are a big organization. To me that doesn't show much for their coachs if they dont know the rules. I just wonder When you are suppose to start teaching right from wrong when it come to pitching these are select players not rec players and their pitching coaches just like my daughters should have sit down with the parents and girl and gone over ththe rules.
ITs only gonna hurt them in the long run. Its a bad habit to get the girls into. Coaches sound like they only care about winning not teaching their girls the correct way. Umps will call more often when they get to U12 and then its gonna be very difficult to correct.
