So the new slapper rule has definitely effected the college game! I have watched about 20 games since the opening night 2 Thursdays ago. Now why is ok for the pitcher to be able to have her foot partially to almost fully out of the pitcher's lane at release but the batter cannot be an inch out of the batter box? Seems a bit of a disadvantage to me. I know she must start on the pitcher plate with both feet inside but this Auburn pitcher has to be illegal 80% of the time, per the rule.
