This baffles me. I played pink ball a few times last summer and I could see it far better than I could pick up the red one, especially in the field. It’s not the first I’ve heard it, and I don‘t doubt it’s true, but I just can’t get my head round the science of it.

Anyway, it’s 3am, my sleep patterns and body clock are totally wasted. This had better be worth it.
Was that under lights or in day time mate? I wonder if it might have more to with the seating/ crowd backgrounds (not that I’m doubting you’re selling the grounds out, mind).

I have achieved a lot of things in this game that I never thought I’d manage when I signed up to this forum back in the first half of my lifetime, but I think it’s going to be a stretch to play under lights...

Crowd and seating is a decent shout. Showing how little I’ve actually paid attention here, but what colour screens do they use with the pink ball in day games / day-night games?
