I forgot this post.all of this crap is Y I never cared for utrip ball
The reason I never cared for utrip is because they only want to be different, but but original. It's annoying, and stupid most if the time.
Pitching is asinine and constantly changing, and I don't mean the pump faking. Instead of just saying 6-10, they say the from release. When it starts getting too flat, they put it a video saying it's basically 6 because you can't really release it that low. Then they say arc means up and down, so they start calling everything that crosses in their strike zone above where you released it a ball saying it hasn't come back down enough. They also changed it from back shoulder to highest shoulder, wtf does that even mean? Not only is most of this gibberish, but it leads to a lot of confused umps. At a time when it's hard to find people willing to ump, utrip wants to make sure they're miserable I guess.
Btw utrip, it only takes one bad ump per event to run it for everyone. I know most are good, but you can't guess which is which in the moment.
Instead of starting 1-1 you walk on three balls and strike out on two strikes. This is some **** my youngest would come up with to claim he's created a completely different game than his brother. How did this make it out of committee?
They finally allowed you to tag up on a third strike foul out if it was caught, and when they put it in the cliffs notes of the rulebook they left out the caught part and said you could advance on a third foul strike(sorry, second since you strike out on two strikes lol), and it came up in the first tournament game that year.
They change just to change without thinking of the consequences and they do things differently just to be different without thinking if it's stupid or not.
