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...)

I assume you meant male and female. Otherwise,the undergarments may not be the only things exposed! :eek:

Sander, I think the "English as a Second Language" barrier caught up with you on this one.

This rule refers to, for example, a long sleeve undershirt, that the arms of the shirt are exposed past the short sleeves of the uniform jersey. Or sliding shorts, whose legs extend past the shorter legs of uniform shorts.

The parts of these that are exposed are regulated as to color, and to match.

The rule doesn't apply to sports bras worn without uniform tops, etc., as I believe you are imagining.

Not even second: thirt is better.
NL, D, GB and finally F... All learnt between the age 6 and 18 at school, somewhere in an earlier century.
And yep, I'm caught. Am I also out?

However, Steve, I wasn't imagining the rule. In the Neth.'s (following ISF) we've made long sleeves and sliding pants part of the uniform. "If worn, must be of same colour and type" or something similair written.
So, for me, that's not undergarment just a part of uniform.
