"The bags are so hard now, and now there's so much fundraising for charity that they take the bags up, they auction them, and bags never really get broken in or there's give to them," Showalter said. "I really think we should look into softening up the bags … where there's some give to the back. You put your foot into a bag, it doesn't give at all, and you bounce off of them sometimes. I'm not making excuses for anything. I'm just saying from a baseball standpoint, we need to look at putting some give into the bags."
