We gonna have a lot of blind umpires at asterisks games. The umps like to be center stage. They wont be sitting this one out. Since fredo says you cant bean them then just allow pitchers to go as inside as they want in the strike zone. No need to hit them if the refs are not calling the inside ball on you. Of course since they are giving you so much leeway one or two balls might happen get away from you and give the guy a sore elbow or knee.
