In usssa we can fake all day and a quick pitch is legal if the batter is in the box reasonably. I love when guys cry "I was quick pitched"! When I bat I step out every pitch, raise hand and enter the box. Good batting habits prevent good pitchers from getting in rythum (hint hint people)

I'm all about it but some guys on the team don't play utrip so they wouldn't know. Nothing better than a pitcher doing his little windmill and you send it over the fence

I agree completely.

I personally don't go for the show boatish stuff on the mound because it is slowpitch 12" and great hitting beats great pitching in the long run. I try to tell some other pitchers work on location and keeping guys off balance yes, but don't make the game about you make it about your team.
