We were passing some little league baseball fields where a sign facing out from a chain link fence (running parallel to the 1st base line) read “No Soft Toss”. What does this mean? I WAG it means no playing catch in this area, perhaps for risk of a stray ball getting on the field? Also, we were curious: How many others would know what this sign means?
Note: My wife grew up in a baseball family where her father was responsible for providing umpires to maybe 20-30 games each weekend…and juggling the schedule to make it work for everyone involved. She heard a lot of baseball talk in her family and all kinds of crazy baseball play scenarios, etc., but never this phrase.
