The days where little league teams are named after the big league teams are over!
Today some of the teams have been named things like, "diamond cutters, "surge" and battastic. Sort of a departure from what we were accustomed to. We can adapt to that.
The rules have changed in some of the leagues too.
A great deal of confusion was evident last week when a young umpire decided to enforce a rule whereby if the runner over shoots the base going to first and turns right to return, he is safe. If he turns left and approaches it from the other hand... He is most likely out.
Is this a case of one hand not knowing what the other hand is doing?
It certainly seems that having everyone who is engaged in a situation should be aware of what the rules are.
It is easy enough for things to get confused when everyone is on the same page! I think we have all been involved in life situations where when the rules changed or were strangely enforced, confusion detracted from everyone's comfort level!
The name of that game has always been ....... WRONG!
