The WIAA has changed the previous Pitching Limitation Rule based upon innings with the following pitch count limitation beginning with the 2017 spring season. The Pitching Limitation Rule applies during all regular season and postseason games, as well to tied, suspended, discontinued or protested games.
The Pitching Limitation Rule is based upon the number of pitches thrown during a calendar day with a maximum of 105 pitches in a calendar day.
High school pitching limitation: # Pitches = Required Rest
76-105 = 3 calendar days
51-75 = 2 calendar days
31 -50 = 1 calendar day
1 – 30 = 0 days
Counting pitches: Every pitch thrown from the pitching mound to a batter will count toward the pitching limitation.The home scorebook will be official recording for pitch counts.
