Watched Mexico vs South Korea.
Mexican pitcher had a tri-colored glove.
Three colors including white on the outside and all white on the inside.
As he strode forward to pitch the white interior of the glove was turned towards the batter.

Maybe it confused the ump into calling so many strikes that were 4-6 inches off the Plate !!!

Surprised a pitcher could get away with white on the glove... as a distraction to the batter

Rule 1.15.
The pitchers glove may not, exclusive of the piping, be white or light gray, nor, in the judgement of the umpire distracting in any manner.

Can't find/post the "Link" but:
Go to the LL Website, Click on the link at the bottom of the page to go the the LL Facebook Page.
Under Videos, Click on See More.
Click on the Video on Mexico Winning Pitchers Duel.
Near the end of the Video there are a few scenes where you can easily see the Mexican Pitcher's Glove that my post is about.

LL loves that kind of stuff on national TV, they aren't going to make a kid change gloves.
We see it every year.

So, once again, Williamsport is saying "Do as I say, not as I do."
