Steve,I’ve never seen a scratch on the break end it. The way it was done at DCC wasBIH behind the line -1 if you scratched. Like Jay Helfert said, it’s hard enough anyway, why add such a major hurdle? I suggested if you don’t like BIH then you can charge a -1 and make them re-break.
I do not believe it would behoove anyone if we ignored the original way the game is played. The game has two foundational rules; any scratch/foul or ball missed ends the rack. It was played that way when I was playing, and it goes back before that and surely this can be confirmed.
This can be checked with Jay, Androd, Billy Jackets, Billy I. and so forth.
