As of January 1, 2019, Yorktown JAA Baseball will be following a pitch count instead of an innings limit, as recommended by MLB Pitch Smart Guidelines.

As stated in Section 10 “Pitching Rules” and T-8 “Tournament Pitching,” any team member may pitch, subject to the restrictions of the pitch count, as recommended by MLB Pitch Smart Guidelines, for age divisions AAA and Intermediate Baseball. Players in the division under AAA and Intermediate age division are not permitted to pitch. Pitchers are to adhere to the chart below for league and sanction tournament play. These guidelines apply to players based on their actual age, not their league age.

 

*If a pitcher has the available pitches, a pitcher could pitch in two (2) games in a day.

Pitchers reaching their maximum number of pitches in a day, while pitching to a batter, may finish pitching to that batter before being removed. A pitcher is charged with the number of pitches in the specific calendar day and week in which they are pitched, regardless of whether they are local organization league games, the playoff of postponed games or suspended games, tie games, or exhibition games.

Rest is calculated as per calendar day.

The league should assign an official scorekeeper for each game to track pitch counts. In the absence of an official scorekeeper, the home team book shall be the official record of games statistics including pitch count. Electronic scoring devices are recommended at all levels of tournament play in order to ensure accurate pitch count.
