Discussion: 6 foot minimum pitch vs excessive speed

Posted Discussion

We just had an unpleasant discussion at our game. There is one contention that at 60 ft, pitching distance, if the pitch is at the 6 foot minimum height, then the pitch is legal. We have another contention that if the pitch comes from that 60 foot distance that the pitch can be called for excessive speed if the umpires judgment rules that in his decision even though the pitch reached 6 foot, the pitch can be called illegal if in his/her opinion, the pitch was delivered with excessive speed. Please reply. Thank you

a pitch from 60 feet will definitely go faster than a pitch from 50 is up to the umpire to make sure the distance is correct, otherwise if it is between 6-12 feet high, it has to be legal if it hits the mat with no excessive speed warning
