    • Per rule 8.06 (d) , a manager or coach who is granted a time out to talk to any defensive player will be charged with a visit to the pitcher. 
  • Pitching rules follow LL international rules:
  • Players league age 10 and under have a limit of 75 pitches in a game.
  • Players league age 11 and over have a limit of 85 pitches in a game.

    0 - 20 pitches requires zero days rest
    21 - 35 pitches requires 1 day of rest before pitching again
    36 - 50 pitches requires 2 days of rest
    51 - 65 pitches requires 3 days rest
    65+ pitches requires 4 days rest

    Pitch count is determined by the count at the start of the final better the pitchers face.  For example, if the pitcher starts his final batter with their 49th pitch and throw 7 pitches to the batter, the pitch official pitch count for that player would be 49.

    Fall Ball Amendment - Coaches decision if they want to take over pitching after a certain number of walks by the pitcher to keep the game moving.  In this scenario, the player continues to pitch, but if they throw 4 balls, the count resets, and the coach pitches to the existing batter.
