looks like just another note saying the same thing we have known for a while. Just waiting on the vote now. The 2015 ball change is imminent.

And if the majority of coaches support the flat-seam ball, the Division I Baseball Committee is likely to approve that change for 2015. Expect a strong majority of coaches to vote in favor of the flat seams—and that will be a great thing for college baseball. Graham is right: Balance must be restored. It looks like it will be very soon.
