    A lot of dumb going on here.


    Seems to happen every year in SoCal.

    Protests are supposed to happen before the next play. So if the game hadn't started yet, why didn't they make the coach protest before the game, not after?

    I suspect that had the other team won, there wouldn't have been a protest.

    This has been going on a long time.


    Know the rules, coaches.

    Yeah, I'd guess the coach actually did know about the rule, but didn't much care for it, and dared the other guy to call him out.

    Rules are rules.

    I hope it was worth it, because that guy is going to have to make sure he follows every rule by the letter for the rest of his life.

    “CIF needs a rule change,” senior outfielder Edward Haus tweeted. “It’s unbelievable that our season comes to an end like this. Santa Monica owes me a CIF ring. They robbed us.”

    You lost in the second round of a 32 team tournament. You didn't quite have a ring yet.

    Just wait until the kid is left off the All-Area team. ::)

    Kinda hard for me to muster up a bunch of sympathy for the (ultimately) losing team ... Would imagine that Whiffle ball batting practice was out of the norm, so I doubt those kids were innocent victims of their coach's decision. I reserve the right to amend this position, however, if it is the case that such an approach to batting practice is not out of the ordinary.

    Can't say for high schools, but I would say below that level just about every team does it, or at least far more do than don't. Coaches want players to see the ball out of the pitcher's hand, but you can't hit hardballs all over the place during warmups. So unless there's a cage with an L-screen where the coach can throw BP, Whiffle balls are the closest replica.

    He'll probably go on a shooting spree now.

    Hilarious joke.

    Dude, kids are going on shooting sprees because they can't get a piece of ass.

    That has become the umbrella of insanity. Everything else falls underneath it.
