Mandatory Calendar Days of Rest

The right hand column represents the # of calendar days the pitcher must go without pitching. So, if Johnny Smith throws 38 pitches on a Monday, then he would be required to sit-out Tuesday and Wednesday (2 calendar days) before being eligible to pitch again on Thursday.

If a pitcher reaches a pitch count threshold while facing a batter, the pitcher may finish that batter. For example, if a pitcher is starting a batter at (throwing pitch number) 35, the pitcher may finish that batter and would be eligible to pitch after 1 calendar day of rest as if they came out of the game at 35 pitches.

The HOME TEAM's tally represents the official pitch count for any given contest.


Coaches Notes on Pitching/Catching/Stealing

Additionally, please be aware of the following two items as it relates to catching and pitching on the same day: (1) If a child catches MORE THAN 3 innings, then he is NOT eligible to pitch later in that same game. This is strictly interpreted so even 1 batter beyond 3 full innings negates the catcher's ability to later take the mound. (2) Any pitcher who throws more than 40 pitches (i.e. 41 or more) in a game may NOT later play catcher in that same game.
