Origin of the Plate as a Strike
I guess I think too much!!! I tried to get an answer for this question a few years back & have asked numerous players & Umps in reference to the plate as a strike.

I am not trying to start a discussion as to whether the plate should B a strike or not; just trying to find the origin of the plate being a strike.

We play ALL of our years with the plate as a ball; then we hit SSBall & it becomes a strike. I have done some research & can find NO info.

Does anyone know When & Why the plate became a strike on SSBall?
