Should neg chatter toward opposing batter/pitcher be Permitted?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Leslie Little League : One Thread
How does little league rule 4.06 -2 relate to the chatter the ball players use while on the field or from the dugout? Why are so mant teams chanting at the opposing pitchers or batters in a negative, arrogant, obnoctious, distracting way? the little league rule book defines the batter and the pitcher as well as the umpire. When teams are holering at the batter and the pitcher to me they are reflecting on that person. Teams are forced to respect the umpires. Why are we not respecting the batter or the pitcher. Both politions are defined and they are a person with feelings that is trying to do a good job.
