Things I’m Waiting to See
Everyone on both teams in the same uniform. Including the same colour belts, undershirts and socks.
Painted batters boxes.
Enclosed dugouts, free of WAGs/HABs/groupies.
A conversation between umpires and coaches on a first-name basis.
BP with more than a dozen baseballs.
Creative BP if there is only a dozen baseballs.
BP throwers using the L-Screen correctly.
BP rounds of 4-6 hacks, rather than hitting the entire bucket (or dozen baseballs).
Pitchers throwing out of the stretch with runners at 2nd and 3rd or the bases loaded.
Game Balls rubbed up by umpires before the game.
The home team supplying umpires with a bucket of pearls and a tub of rubbing mud before the game.
A rosin bag on the backside of the mound.
Music between innings.
A hitter to shut their swing down when a runner has the bag stolen.
Pitchers delivering to the plate in 1.35 seconds or less with runners on.
Let's hope the rain stays away this weekend, enjoy your games, win this pitch.
