    We had the 2nd baseman and shortstop covering 2nd base on that safety squeeze

    nobody covering first base.

    The 2nd baseman was out of place. Not surprising. He just doesn't have it between the ears to compete at this level

    We had another weird defensive scheme in another game. Runner on first, no, or one outs. I think it was the Coastal Carolina game, but may have been the first UConn game. They bunt, we have the 3rd basemen running to cover 2nd, and the SS running to cover 3rd.

    That much movement is not good. Guys just don't field that well moving.

    That simply made no sense.

    Are you sure that's what happened. I've seen some weird/funny stuff umping Babe Ruth youth baseball but can't imagine what you just described.

    But that's pre-high school basics!
