What if
Here's a "what if"

Susie's mom brings Susie's best friend that has NEVER played for Valley Sports before. Susie is in Tee Ball and Jakey is in Tee Ball. The price of Tee Ball is $85.00 and 1/2 of $85.00 is $42.50; plus Susie's concession fee of $40.00. Making Susie's moms TOTAL $82.50. ALSO making Jakeys Moms TOTAL $82.50................ OK but what if Susie's little brother wants to play Wee ball?, Then you add the extra $20.00 fee making a New Total of $102.50. (We'll why don't we get 1/2 off the second kid? Because you are already getting a HUGE discount for that second kid.) Hope this helps to clear any confusion.

Rule 8.01(f) has been amended to read:

Applies to: Baseball Rule Book

A pitcher must indicate visually to the umpire-in-chief, the batter and any runners the hand with which he/she intends to pitch, which may be done by wearing his/her glove on the other hand while touching the pitcher's plate. The pitcher is not permitted to pitch with the other hand until the batter is retired, the batter becomes a runner, the inning ends, the batter is substituted for by a pinch-hitter or the pitcher incurs an injury. In the event a pitcher switches pitching hands during an at-bat because he/she has suffered an injury, the pitcher may not, for the remainder of the game, pitch with the hand from which he/she has switched. The pitcher shall not be given the opportunity to throw any preparatory pitches after switching pitching hands. Any change of pitching hands must be indicated clearly to the umpire-in-chief.

Summary and Implementation: For the 2013 season, language was added mandating a pitcher must indicate which hand the player intends to pitch with to a batter.
