Not real baseball. You guys and your real baseball. Like everyone else is playing fake baseball. Exploiting a teams weakness is a part of every sport. Now exploiting that weakness into a slaughter is a no no. When you're playing within the rules to gain an advantage than I don't see anything wrong with it.
There is extremes at every level and it's all based on prespective.
We have a coach in our league 10-12yr olds that gets upset if you steal second at will because he has a weak catcher. His whole point is you would never take that risk under "normal baseball" circumstances. My point to him is if you want to defend against the steal move your hotshot ss behind the plate and we wont steal at will. We make defensive position choices all the time based on what talent we have available and what we want to defend against. If an offense finds a hole we make adjustments.
Should the 12yr old pitchers back off on the bottom half of the 10yr old line up to give them a shot at putting it in play?
