Everyone should be aware of the new rule this year which states that chin straps are not required. Plus....

Also - when a foul ball is caught by the catcher, how high does it have to go?
On P 27 of the ASA rule book, there is nothing which states the minimum height of a foul ball. There is a definition of a foul tip - which is different from a foul ball.
If a foul ball (not a foul tip) is caught by the catcher, it is an out.
