I look at that rule with some balancing. A few years ago it was really pushed by our state about uniforms. Making sure the hats were all the same color and the uniforms were all similar and pants were all the same.
That's nice.
But when you are out calling for a school with limited funds and it is 40* with a wind chill of 30*, I don't give a darn what the players have on their heads nor what color is protecting their ears. I don't worry if one player has a black jacket on and another player has a blue jacket on.
I have never heard anything from a coach or fan about protecting the girls.

Now if it was a team good team that maybe going to the playoffs, I would infor the coach so she could make plans for the future.

MN being MN ("all of our kids are above average"), all teams go to the playoffs...

I put false on the test and made 100 so they must want school colors only for testing.

the false part is the "considered part of the official uniform"? no?

BTW, AFAIC, the school colors are anything similar to what is already included on the uniform

Just about to post that, which is what makes tha answer false.

Only our non-NFHS person caught it. :p ;)

NFHS 3.2.7
"Exposed undergarments, if worn, are considered part of the official uniform. All exposed undergarments shall be black, white, gray or a solid school color."

I think that's the passage relevant to the test question.

Art. 7 goes on:
a. Exposed upper-body undergarments do not have to be the same color as exposed lower-body undergarments.
b. All exposed upper-body undergarments shall be the same color, and all exposed lower-body undergarments shall be the same color.

Not included in the NFHS book that I could find was if'n the umpires had any exposed undergarments if they had to be the same color. :eek:

edit: except for t-shirts, if worn.

... and undergarments (exposed) can be of ANY color as long as its solid. including optic yellow. then you would refer to "is it distracting" on the pitcher.

Women on the field exposing their undergarment is distracting to me. Imagine the color yellow in front and brown at the back. Very distracting!:D

Wait! Some are talking juggling, some are talking jiggling! It's confusing...but it's a NICE confusing.

Here's a question. How exposed does an undergarment have to be to be exposed?

Well John,

I'm sorry to say, that we have very little top- or pro-umpires working in youth softball. So over 90% of my games are in "adult" softball. Both male as female.
Notice I've placed the brackets; the young ladies are mostly over 17 years old. Some talented girls are under 17 as they start playing in the dutch top-league...
However, on the fields i've never seen any exposed undergarments at players, coaches nor umpires! If they do, i think i'll ask them to start wearing their uniform properly (or leave my diamond...)
