I halfway agree with this. This is just my opinion but i think this only applies for I would say 15min total in the game and that 15 min is when the shadow is somewhere right at the front of the mound to the rubber. If it's in between the plate and mound it makes no difference as you better of already made the decision on ball/strike, pitch, swing, take ect.

As a hitter you have a split second to decide if you are swinging or not. In that split second your mind has to process a ton that comes from reps. Arm slot of the pitcher, wrist angle of the pitcher, ect. ect. the list goes on and on but you dont realize your body is doing all of this due to the amount of reps you get every day at that level and your mind/body kind of go into auto pilot.

Just from being fortunate to play in Omaha at TD Ameritrade the shadows and everything mess far more with the left side of the defense more than the hitter. The sun and glare are absolutely terrible and there have already been multiple plays where the left fielders are getting terrible reads or just not picking the ball up off the bat at all.

I think the night games have just seen some dominating pitching.

All 4 teams actually. All of the offenses struggled. 4 runs total.

Horns look like home is where they are headed. Look like absolute shat. Leadoff hitter, 1st pitch swinging flyout. Hope I am wrong but not looking good out the gate.

Nope. He pitched like a guy that thought he was hittable.

Great play by Daly to start the double play there.

Very disappointing that he was not his usual self today. I really thought he would have a dominate performance with the way he has been throwing.

I think radio with the great Craig Way is a better option in Omaha than some of their PBP clowns.
