we've been using the pitcher screen for league play for at least 3 or more years now in NorCal. The pitcher can move & adjust the screen side to side, up and back within the lines drawn. we had a couple pitchers hit in the face in our area & they had to have facial & oral surgery. One almost lost eyesight in one eye. After that the screens were adopted. At first there was complaints and criticism that protective screens aren't part of the game but we're used to it now. If a batted ball hits the screen, it is an out. I think I've hit the screen once in a 10 game league & better the ball hits the screen and be an out than it hits the pitcher and be an out. There is still plenty of base hit room on either side or over the top of the screen. The main benifit is we no longer have to worry about pitchers being seriously injured by 100+ mph line drives. I highly recommend the screen for senior ball.
