In any Little League Baseball game, the eligibility of a player to pitch is determined by a tiered pitch count which is directly related to the number of pitches thrown in a game. This pitch count also determines the number of days a player needs to rest before he or she can pitch again in a Little League game.
Little League Baseball, Inc., has always imposed limits on how much a pitcher may pitch. The limits were originally designed to encourage teams to develop additional pitchers, but since 2007, the baseball pitching limits have been made more stringent in an effort to protect hurlers’ arms. As a result, the pitching regulations for baseball and softball differ significantly. Little League Baseball provides valuable information as it pertains to Pitching Rules and Guidelines.
Below is a summary of the current pitch count rules, as they apply to players in CCLL.
|AGE||DAILY MAX (PITCHES)||REQUIRED REST (PITCHES)|
