Little League umpires in rural Massachusetts ordering players not to speak Spanish during games? Yep. The umps said that they were concerned that coaches would use Spanish to communicate "illegal" instructions to their players. Putting aside the xenophobia that's in play here, I'm wondering how the umpires feel about the classic secret base-running and bat-swinging signs that have been standardly used by coaches and players more or less since the inception of baseball.
