PITCHING RULES FOR 2014

TWLL’s local pitching rule is now in effect until weekday games begin.  
The local rule limits a pitcher's performance to three (3) innings per game, maximum.  
Even if the maximum pitch count set forth in the Green Book has not been reached, TWLL’s local pitching rules take priority over the Green Book.

Pitchers League Age 12 or less must adhere to the following rest requirements:
1-20 pitches, no pitching rest days required before the player may pitch in a subsequent game. 
21-35 pitches, one (1) pitching rest day required before the player may pitch in a subsequent game.
36-50 pitches, two (2) pitching rest days required before the player may pitch in a subsequent game.
51-65 pitches, three (3) pitching rest days required before the player may pitch in a subsequent game.
66 or more pitches, four (4) pitching rest days required before the player may pitch in a subsequent game.
 
Exception:  If a pitcher reaches a day(s) of rest threshold while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch past the threshold without observing the additional day of rest until: (1) the batter reaches base; (2) the batter is retired; or (3) the third out is made to complete the half-inning provided the pitcher is removed before delivering a pitch to another batter.  This exception was new in 2013.
 
Note:  A pitcher may not pitch in more than one game in a day.
 
Pursuant to Rule VI (c), the maximum per day pitching rules remain the same this year as last year.  The limits are as follows:
  • Pitch Count Limits
  • League Age 11 to 12       85 pitches per day
  • League Age 9 to 10         75 pitches per day
  • League Age 7 to 8           50 pitches per day
Exception:  If a pitcher reaches the maximum per day limit while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until any one of the following occur: (1) the batter reaches base; (2) the batter is retired; or (3) the third out is made to complete the half-inning.

NOTE:  Pursuant to TWLL Local Rules, until weekday games commence, no player may pitch in more than 3 innings.  ExceptionThis local rule does not apply in the event that the League has scheduled the teams in a Division to play on Saturday and Sunday or when a weekend double header is scheduled (Majors Division only).  On such weekends the 3 inning Local Rule is suspended and only the Green Book pitch count rules must be observed.

Note:  A player who delivers 41 or more pitches in a game cannot play the position of catcher for the remainder of that day.
 
Note:  A player who catches in more than 3 innings of play cannot play the position of pitcher for the remainder of that day.

At each game, Managers shall maintain Pitching Logs and have them signed by the official scorekeeper and opposing manager after each game.  Immediately after each game, the Pitching Log information shall be reported to the TWLL President and will be available to all managers in the division.  

Send the completed Pitching Log info to Michael Taurek <mtaurek@greenhall.com> or put it in Mike's File Folder located outside the Snack Bar.  Click here for Pitcher Eligibility Tracking Form
 


Registration Challenger
Challenger Division
The Challenger Division of Little League is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, which are hallmarks of the Little League program. The Little League Challenger Division provides the framework so Little League programs may offer a structured, athletic activity for all youth in their communities. Playing with the same equipment on the same fields, Challenger Division participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.
