[High School pitchers, here is the call from the NCHSAA:]
The maximum number of pitches allowed in a single day is 105. In addition, there are mandatory rest days required based on the number of pitches a pitcher throws in a game.
+++++If a pitcher throws 76 or more pitches in a day, four calendar days of rest are required before pitching again. If a pitcher throws 61-75 pitches, the pitcher must rest three calendar days. For 46-60 pitches, a pitcher must rest two calendar days; and one calendar day of rest is required for 31-45 pitches. Less than 31 pitches does not require any rest.+++++
*****The pitch count rules apply only to pitches during an at-bat. If a pitcher reaches the 105-pitch threshold, he will be allowed to finish the at-bat before he has to leave the mound.*****
+++++Coaches will be responsible for tracking the number of pitches on an accountability form. The form will be signed by competing coaches and entered into MaxPreps.+++++
