Your call was correct. Coaches want all kinds of things. It's generally best to not give it to them.

Finally, be courteous, impartial and firm, and so compel respect from all.

Let's all say it together:

The hands ARE NOT part of the bat!

Thanks for the response, I told the coach the hand is not part of the bat.
