Tournament and Regular Season Pitching Rules Made the Same by Adoption of New Rule

Previously, for example, a 12-year-old pitcher in the regular season who threw the maximum 85 pitches in a day was required to have either three calendar days of rest and one game (or four days of rest and no game, at the option of the local league), before pitching again. In 2010, that same pitcher will simply be required to have four days of rest.

Previously, for tournament play including the Little League Baseball World Series, a 12-year-old pitcher who threw 85 pitches would need two days of rest, and one game, before pitching again. In 2010, that pitcher will be required to have four days of rest, same as during the regular season.
As in previous years, as the number of pitches decreases, the number of days of rest also decreases incrementally.

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.6 million players and 1 million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
