Regular Season Pitch Count Rules

Baseball AAA, Majors, JRs, SRs
Regular Season Pitching Rules


The eligibility of a player to pitch in a Little League® Baseball game is governed by a tiered pitch count that is tied to the number of pitches throw in a game. The pitch count determines how many days of rest are required before said player may pitch again in a Little League game.
