Deleting The PPR Rule, " Pitcher Safety" Summary
My interpretation of the posts received regarding the subject: Deleting The PPR Rule "Pitcher Safety"
This thread received 45 posts most of them were related to the subject, I only read those that pertained to the subject.
One thing I noticed while reading the post that it is very easy to flow away from the main subject and of course their are those that just want to talk trash.
The screen has been used by a number of leagues and it's location on the playing field did not take away from the game, nothing was mentioned about the screen being hit. That is good news.
In one of my leagues the screen is only used during BP and is hit frequently. In my other league the screen when hit is a DB and is not hit that often. If a screen is used I would suggest that it be simalar to the Pitch Saf which is 76" tall x 38" wide. I agree with one of the post that if the screen is to be used useage should be determined by a certain age division. I would suggest 65's and 70's etc.

How dumb people are. :(

Of course it might not get hit as people make contrived moves to throw around it. What benefit would there be to hitting it?

NOT exactly how the game was meant to be played, with obstacles like a miniature golf hole.
