My son will be playing his first season of HS ball this spring. He was working out with a local baseball academy during January and one of the coaches advised him that NFHS rules are different than the OBRs and that he needed to change the way he comes set:
Currently when he comes set, the top edge of his glove is about eye-level. The coach said that NFHS rules say that the top edge of the glove must be no higher than chin level.
Anybody familiar with this rule, or the reasoning behind it? It’s no big deal to change, I just want to know if there really is a specific rule about “must come set w/ glove below the chin”…
