|Another pitcher rule thought|
I noticed another small effect of the new pitcher rule while playing in Fort Meyers. I noticed a number of the SSs positioned more towards the 3rd baseman than I have ever seen. I think the theory was that guys wouldn't take a chance and hit the middle. I did go middle a few times which I usually don't do. When you come up and the SS is in the strong pull hole and there is a 60' to 70' gap between the SS and 2nd baseman, where are you going??? It will be interesting to see how this plays out next year.

|That could also work for a 5\6 hole, having the ss move towards 2nd...|
Good post by staff on whole thing.

|That is a good point. We had a lot of balls hit at the middle and I believe that the reason was that our SS was playing the hole because this same reason. Very good point. Overall it was great tourney for us. Lost 3 games by 5 runs total, the competition was great a lot better than we expected. Had few injuries and two of the main guys decided not to make the trip. Wonderful fields and teams. Had a wonderful time.|
