~UIL PITCH COUNT IMPLEMENTATION~
High School Pitch Count (Grades 9 through 12):
Updated Jan. 2017
0 days rest
1 day rest
2 days rest
3 days rest
4 days rest
￼￼During regular season, pitch count limit is determined after each single game appearance
Only official game pitches will count. (not warm up pitches)
Rest is defined as not using a pitcher in a contest.
Rest days are counted for the full day regardless of appearance start time. (ex: Varsity Pitcher throws 95 pitches on Friday. Rest days are Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues. He is eligible to pitch on Wednesday, not Tuesday night.).
A pitcher will be allowed to complete current at-bat even if they hit pitch count max during the at-bat, but must exit as a pitcher after that hitter regardless of recording an out or number of outs in inning.
There are no restrictions on allowing any game day pitcher (starter or reliever) from resuming play in the field after being removed as a pitcher, regardless of pitch count.
There will be NO change to regulations in post-season play. (i.e.: no increase in pitch count max or leeway in rest days)
