Pitch Count worksheets can be found on the documents page:

Max pitches:

7-8yr    50 in a day
9-10yr    75 in a day
11-12yr   85 in a day

Rest periods:

A pitcher who delivers 41 or more pitches in a day cannot play catcher for the remainder of that day.



Pitchers aged 14 and under must adhere to the following rest requirements:

  • If a player pitches 66 or more pitches in a day, four (4) calendar days of rest must be observed.

  • If a player pitches 51 - 65 pitches in a day, three (3) calendar days of rest must be observed.

  • If a player pitches 36-50 pitches in a day, two (2) calendar days of rest must be observed.

  • If a player pitches 21-35 pitches in a day, one (1) calendar day of rest must be observed.

  • If a player pitches 1-20 pitches in a day, no (0) calendar day of rest must be observed.

  • EXAMPLE: If you have a pitcher throwing >50 pitches on Wednesday they can not pitch on Saturday. Likewise, if a player plays on another team (perhaps travel ball) on Saturday and throws 66 pitches, that pitcher can not throw until Thursday.

  • Violation of the pitching rules can lead to game forfeits, even if discovered after the fact.


Exception:

If a pitcher reaches the limit imposed in Regulation VI (c) for

his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until any one
of the following conditions occurs:

1. That batter reaches base.
2. That batter is put out.

3. The third out is made to complete the half-inning.
