I did, the games where kind of a let down, Why would coaches call pitches? Do the Coaches get an award for winning or is it about the girls. The reason I ask, What happens when an opposing conference Coach knows the opposing player very well and only calls pitches they cant hit very well or cant hit at all? Isn't this kind of a last chance to impress for some of these girls?

Both I think, but I know for sure the East was.

Are you serious?  You are upset because a coach was coaching and trying to win?  Why would you not call pitches the batter cannot hit, its a game, they keep score, the kids want to win.  If the kid cannot hit pitches he or she isn't going to go to college any way.

I'm with you NBH. The pitchers are trying to impress also. Serving meatballs the whole game doesn't really look good on them.
