It's not Little League. When all-stars come to districts, we have to remind coaches they aren't playing with their local rules.

I believe there is a national org that's outlawed it, but I don't...

I see my kid do this, to be honest, but it doesn't help her. She pitches worse when she doesn't stop, take a deep breath, etc.

E2 for the interference, but the batter is NOT charged with an at bat.

It does count as a plate appearance, but the formula for determining OBP only includes H, AB, BB, HBP, and SF.

Long sleeve shirt or plate coat are the two cooler/cold weather options.
