I would allow defensive coach to appeal the unreported sub and deal with it.
Now I have to deal with the offensive coach and manage that situation. Bottom line is that the offensive coach and player have had ample opportunity to properly report the sub into the game and did not do so.
Much like when you have multiple violations, you address actions in the order which they occur.

Makes a lot of sense to me.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
