That's why we have things like clinics and schools to make sure the umpires on the field know better. In the past when raised, the umpire would accept the proper interp & ruling.

It wasn't until this year I have actually seen someone INSIST this was the proper interpretation.
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
