Pitch Count

Baseball divisions are required to monitor and keep track of pitch counts and rest days for each pitcher.
Maximum allowable pitches (per game) are based upon age. Rest days are based upon pitches thrown in a game.
Managers and coaches are required to know and understand the pitching rules.

Pitch counts are required to be documented on the Pitch Count Tracking Sheet, and are to be available for inspection by the opposing manager, umpire, or league official at anytime.

The Pitch Count Tracking Sheet will be required to be turned in and verified by the league official at the beginning of each tournament game, along with a team line-up.

A Game Pitch Count Form is also available to assist the Score Keeper to track pitches thrown by each pitcher during a game.

Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken (Safe Pitch) Basics for Pitch Count Maximum Pitches 
  Age 7 - 8 = 50
  Age 9 - 10 = 75
 Age 11 - 12 = 85
 Age 13 - 14 = 95


AA and AAA
(Safe Pitch) Pitches Thrown Required Rest Days
1 - 20 =  0 days rest
21 - 35 = 1 day rest
36 - 50 = 2 day rest
51 - 65 = 3 days rest 
66 + = 4 days rest

Pitchers CANNOT play catcher if they threw 41 or more pitches in a game.
(Max 40 pitches to catch)

 Catchers CANNOT pitch if they played catcher 4 innings or more. (Max catch is 3 innings)
 One pitch in an inning equals an inning played.

If a pitcher reaches their maximum pitch count, or a threshold, during a batter, they may finish that batter and will only be required to rest the number of days that coincides with the threshold reached. EXAMPLE - Pitcher reaches 35 pitches during a batter, but only has a 2-2 count. Pitcher throws 3 more pitches to end that batter, so he has a total of 38 pitches thrown.
He is only required to rest to the 35 threshold limit of 1 day.
