Waiting for games to start this afternoon so I decided to watch some WAC softball. SU vs. Utah Valley. Game two of double header and the field did not get dragged or re-chalked. Home plate ump with no batters box has called 3 SU batters and one UVU batter out of the box in the first 2 innings with NO BOX! In my opinion if a school who cannot get the field ready for conference play should just forfeit, and the umpire should not make that call unless the batter steps on the fricking plate. The umpires shouldn't even let the game begin if the field is not ready for play, this is worse than high school, which was worse than the worst travel ball.

You act as if the box matters to umpires to make the out of the box call. Happens every weekend.
