2016 Murrayhill Little League Pitching Rules

Murrayhill Little League Pitching Rules - 2016 Baseball Regular Season

The following regulation takes the place of Little League Regulation VI in the baseball division(s) for the 2016 Regular Season.

VI - PITCHERS

Any player on a regular season team may pitch. (NOTE: There is no limit to the number of pitchers a team may use in a game.)

(b) A pitcher once removed from the mound cannot return as a pitcher. Junior, Senior, and Big League Divisions only: A pitcher remaining in the game, but moving to a different position, can return as a pitcher anytime in the remainder of the game, but only once per game.

(c) The manager must remove the pitcher when said pitcher reaches the limit for his/her age group as noted below, but the pitcher may remain in the game at another position:

League Age

17-18 105 pitches per day
13 -16 95 pitches per day
11 -12 85 pitches per day
9-10 75 pitches per day
7-8 50 pitches per day

Exception: If a pitcher reaches the limit imposed in Regulation VI (c) for his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until any one of the following conditions occurs: 1. That batter reaches base; 2. That batter is put out; 3. The third out is made to complete the half-inning. Note 1: A pitcher who delivers 41 or more pitches in a game cannot play the position of catcher for the remainder of that day. Also, a player who plays the position of catcher for 4 innings may not pitch in that game.

For the first 3 weeks of the Minors schedule, no pitcher is allowed to pitch more than 3 innings - however they are still restricted to the pitch count rules during this time.

(d) Pitchers league age 14 and under must adhere to the following rest requirements:

• If a player pitches 66 or more pitches in a day, four (4) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 51 - 65 pitches in a day, three (3) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 36 - 50 pitches in a day, two (2) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 21 - 35 pitches in a day, one (1) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 1-20 pitches in a day, no (0) calendar day of rest is required.

Pitchers league age 15-18 must adhere to the following rest requirements:

• If a player pitches 76 or more pitches in a day, four (4) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 61 - 75 pitches in a day, three (3) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 46 - 60 pitches in a day, two (2) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 31 -45 pitches in a day, one (1) calendar days of rest must be observed.
• If a player pitches 1-30 pitches in a day, no (0) calendar day of rest is required.

(e) Each league must designate the scorekeeper or another game official as the official pitch count recorder.

(f) The pitch count recorder must provide the current pitch count for any pitcher when requested by either manager or any umpire. However, the manager is responsible for knowing when his/her pitcher must be removed.

(g) The official pitch count recorder should inform the umpire-in-chief when a pitcher has delivered his/her maximum limit of pitches for the game, as noted in Regulation VI (c). The umpire-in-chief will inform the pitcher's manager that the pitcher must be removed in accordance with Regulation VI (c). However, the failure by the pitch count recorder to notify the umpire-in-chief, and/or the failure of the umpire-in-chief to notify the manager, does not relieve the manager of his/her responsibility to remove a pitcher when that pitcher is no longer eligible.

(h) Violation of any section of this regulation can result in protest of the game in which it occurs. Protest shall be made in accordance with Playing Rule 4.19.

(j) A player who has attained the league age of twelve (12) is not eligible to pitch in the Minor League. (See Regulation V - Selection of Players)

(k) A player may not pitch in more than one game in a day. (Exception: In the Big League Division, a player may be used as a pitcher in up to two games in a day.)

NOTES :
1. The withdrawal of an ineligible pitcher after that pitcher is announced, or after a warm-up pitch is delivered, but before that player has pitched a ball to a batter, shall not be considered a violation. Little League officials are urged to take precautions to prevent protests. When a protest situation is imminent, the potential offender should be notified immediately.
2. Pitches delivered in games declared "Regulation Tie Games" or "Suspended Games" shall be charged against pitcher's eligibility.
3. In suspended games resumed on another day, the pitchers of record at the time the game was halted may continue to pitch to the extent of their eligibility for that day, provided said pitcher has observed the required days of rest.
Example 1: A league age 12 pitcher delivers 70 pitches in a game on Monday when the game is suspended. The game resumes on the following Thursday. The pitcher is not eligible to pitch in the resumption of the game because he/she has not observed the required days of rest.
Example 2: A league age 12 pitcher delivers 70 pitches in a game on Monday when the game is suspended. The game resumes on Saturday. The pitcher is eligible to pitch up to
85 more pitches in the resumption of the game because he/she has observed the required days of rest.
Example 3: A league age 12 pitcher delivers 70 pitches in a game on Monday when the game is suspended. The game resumes two weeks later. The pitcher is eligible to pitch up to 85 more pitches in the resumption of the game, provided he/she is eligible based on his/her pitching record during the previous four days.
Note: The use of this regulation negates the concept of the "calendar week" with regard to pitching eligibility.

MHLL 11 year old Rule:

(l). Sixty (60) pitches per calendar week (Sunday through Saturday) must be made by 11 year old players for each team in the Major Division during league games, subject to normal rest and pitch count restrictions. League games are defined as games between Murrayhill opponents.

All pitches thrown by 11 year old players of a single team count toward the sixty (60) pitch requirement. However, if team has a bye in a particular week, the team will only be required to throw 40 pitches by an 11 year old in the remaining two MHLL league games. Additionally, if the team plays a non-league game, the team will only be required to throw 40 pitches by an 11 year old in your remaining two MHLL games.

Please note: The 40 pitches must be thrown in MHLL League games. 11 year old pitches thrown against a non-league opponent will not meet the requirement for the week.

In the event that the number of "league" games played during a calendar week is less than three (3) due to the schedule, or due to rain-outs, the required number of pitches required is reduced to Forty (40) pitches. Unscheduled games or make up games will not be subject to this rule.

NOTE: If the last game of the week is cancelled for any reason, the 11 year old pitch rules, as described above, still apply for the calendar week. The intention of the manager to pitch an 11 year old in a cancelled game does not waive the rules. If a team fails to meet the 11 year old pitch requirement as described above, than the remedy will follow the guidelines in Little League Rules section IV(i) governing minimum playing time.

PENALTY: (An) 11 year old(s) will start the next game, and throw the required pitches not thrown in the previous week. This amount will not count toward the requirement for the current week, but will be added to the requirement for the current week. Additional offenses will follow the guidelines outlined in Little League Rules section IV(i).

(m). In the Minors division, no pitcher will pitch more than three innings per game during the first half of the season. For the 2nd half of the seasion, pitchers in the Minor division may pitch more than 3 innings in a game, as long as the pitcher meets all other criteria in the 2016 Murrayhill Local Rules and Pitch Count Regulations.
