Perfect Game Youth Pitching Rules
Each player shall receive 6 innings through the first four games. Starting with a team's 5th game played, every player will gain an additional inning of eligibility PER GAME thereafter (EX. 12U Player A has 4 innings through 4 games. During the 5th game, Player A would then be eligible to pitch 3 innings). No limit on the number of appearances per tournament, but please be mindful of your young arms.
An inning is added to a pitcher's total as soon as he/she has toed the rubber and throws one pitch (warm up or game). Each pitcher will receive 8 pitches to warm up at the beginning of the game or as they enter into the game, and five thereafter.
If a pitcher throws more than 3 innings in a day, then it is a mandatory 2 day rest period.
Pitcher cannot throw 3 consecutive days in a row.
Max number of 100 pitches in a 4-day or less event only. Additionally, if a pitcher reaches the maximum limit of pitches in a game during a batter’s plate appearance, the pitcher may continue in the game until such plate appearance or the inning ends (i.e. by a third out made by catching a runner stealing), whichever comes first.
