Discussion with coworker. Is the 4~5, 5~6, or like th 9~10 considered a split. I said it's considered a baby split, he says no.
Thoughts?

Re: Split??

From the USBC rulebook

2h. Split
A split is a setup of pins left standing after the first delivery, provided the head pin is down and at least one pin is down:
1. Between two or more standing pins; e.g., 7-9 or 3-10.
2. Immediately ahead of two or more standing pins; e.g., 5-6.
NOTE: A split is usually designated by a (0), but any other symbol may be used.

No a Baby split is the 3-10 or 2-7 (for left handers)

In the old bowling books that explained some of this stuff.

The 2-3, 4-5, 5-6, 7-8, 8-9, 9-10 are known as side by side splits. Also called "fit splits" because you had to fit the ball in between them to pick it up.
