Overview of High School Baseball Pitch Limits

There was a time not too long ago where baseball coaches at the high school and junior high levels could utilize their pitchers as much or as little as they wanted to. However, as more pitchers started experiencing injuries at young ages, the rules started to change a little bitFor the past decade or so, different ideas have been discussed to protect the safety of young athletes from an injury perspective. The reality is most high school and junior high pitchers don’t have the proper mechanics that it takes to throw the ball for an extended amount of time without getting injured. Fatigue injuries are very common in high school and junior high, so one of the ways to address the issue is to put a limit on pitch counts to hold coaches accountable.

 

 

Unfair Advantage to Teams

 

 

Another reason why pitch counts have been adopted is to even out the playing field as much as possible. Some teams may have a star pitcher who can win every game he pitches in. By limiting the amount of pitches he can throw in a certain timeframe, it gives other teams a chance to hit off of other pitchers. And for the other players on the team, they will get an opportunity to pitch more if the coach can’t play their star player every game.

Baseball Pitch Count Rules: State-by-State

Every state has adopted their own set of rules and regulations for their pitch counts. Below is a comprehensive table of the pitch count limit and the number of days rest required for each pitcher in each state:

The Bottom Line

The main reason why the pitch count limit was adopted in each state was to protect players from injury and level the playing field. There are still plenty of ways young baseball players can get injured, but limiting the amount of pitches thrown during a certain timeframe is a good start.
