Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: Stepping out of the front of the box?

Guys, the BLD boxes in Vegas (and everywhere else there is turf fields for that fact) are not 7 feet, they are 6 feet baseball batters boxes. I tried to explain that to SSUSA but they don’t seem to care, which is odd because I figured they would want to have a correct interpretation of the rules. I played in the conference for years and the box couldn’t be called at BLD for that reason. Silly to have the front of the strike zone (front of the plate) 2 feet from the front of the box. Doesn’t make any sense, and in my case, keeps me hard on my front foot on short balls that I routinely hit through the pitchers knees. Felt bad hitting the guys I did but couldn’t really help it not being able to get through the bottom half of a ball being 6’3 and out of the box on a normal stride on a short pitch.
