o) Any player playing in a series above his age must be identified on the alignment card. Underage players who are not on the alignment card are not eligible to play. If such an unidentified minor player shows up, the pitcher will be removed from the pitching position and the manager will be expelled. a) Unless otherwise specified, all arm care rules listed in P2.11 apply throughout the baseball season and apply to all league games. u) Any coach or manager whose actions result in exceeding or not counting a player`s number of throws according to these rules, and such action is not identified until after the end of the match, will be subject to a suspension of at least 2 matches, which may be extended at the discretion of the WOBA Chief Referee. Example 1 – A player pitches seven innings in a junior division game on Sunday. On Monday, the player has a game scheduled in the major division. The player would not be eligible to pitch in this game, as Major Division rules require him to have a calendar day off, as he pitched in more than six innings the day before. NOTE: The local league board or district may impose additional pitching restrictions during the regular and interleague seasons.
Junior League: A local league board of directors may prohibit 15-year-olds from pitching in the junior division. p) When a player reaches his daily maximum number of pitches, the manager or coach may immediately remove the pitcher from the pitching position without penalty, regardless of the number of trips already charged to the pitcher during the inning or at bat. Junior/Senior League: No throwing restrictions apply. k) Once removed from the pitching position, a player may not catch for the rest of the day. This applies to all WOBA exposure loop games. v) All violations of the above height limitation rules must be reported to WOBA within 24 hours of the violation. An online incident report form and an exclusion form are both available on the WOBA website: wobabaseball.ca/ penalty: Failure to remove the pitcher without notice from the official counter will result in the immediate expulsion of the manager and the pitcher will be immediately removed from the pitching position and will not be allowed to perform the batting position. This is treated as an emergency situation and the incoming pitcher receives as many warm-up shots as the umpire deems necessary. b) If the team does not accept these cast counting rules, the team will lose its right to qualify for an OBA championship and participate in ABO sanctioned tournaments. (a) Any player in the squad may pitch.
EXCEPTION: Minor League: A player who has reached the age of twelve (12) is not eligible to play in the minor league. Junior League: A local league board of directors may prohibit 15-year-olds from pitching in the junior division. m) Penalty: For violation of the arm maintenance rules according to RP2.11(c) to (l), the manager`s manager will be ejected and the game will be immediately confiscated. The manager receives an automatic ban for a game. If a pitcher pitches during their mandatory rest period in violation of RP2.11(c), the launcher`s maximum rest period will be restored to the maximum rest period of 4 days from the second appearance. For a 12-year-old participating in the Major League and Junior or Senior divisions, as permitted by Regulation IV (a), the rest day rules and regulations relevant to the division in which the pitcher is used will apply to that game. Previously pitched innings in both divisions will be taken into account in determining the pitcher`s eligibility for a particular game in terms of rest days and number of innings available. A player who has played catcher for three (3) innings or less, who moves to the pitching position and who pitches 21 or more pitches (ages 15 and 16: 31 pitches or more) on the same day may not return to catcher on that day. EXCEPTION: If the pitcher reaches the 20-pitch limit (ages 15 and 16: 30-pitch limit) while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch and retain eligibility to return to catcher until one of the following conditions occurs: (1) that batter reaches base; (2) the paste is discarded; (3) the third exit is made to complete half of the inning or game; or (4) the pitcher is removed from the hill before the batter has completed his at-bat. Exception: Any player who has played catcher in four (4) or more innings in a game is not eligible to play that day. Throwing restrictions for 12-year-olds participating in major and junior leagues or senior leagues.
NOTE 2: The number of pitches a pitch a pitch for the rest period is determined by the first pitch thrown at a hitter. The pitcher may not start a new batter once the limit specified in Rule VI c) has been reached. (f) The pitch count recorder shall provide the current number of pitches for each pitcher at the request of the manager or a referee. However, the manager is responsible for knowing when his pitcher should be removed. A player`s eligibility to pitch in a Little League® Baseball game is determined by a staggered number of pitches related to the number of pitches in a game. The number of playing fields determines the number of rest days required before the player is allowed to pitch again in a Little League game. o On a team`s first offense of the season, immediate ban of the manager until the shot count is entered. EXCEPTION: In case of illness or injury of a fifth pitcher, an additional pitcher may be used. (c) Minor/Major: A pitcher who remains in the game but changes position may return as a pitcher at any time during the remainder of the game, but only once in the same inning in which he was retired. A pitcher who is removed from play offensively or defensively for a backup player cannot return to play as a pitcher.
Exception: see Rule 3.03(c). Junior/Senior League: A pitcher can be removed from play offensively or defensively and return as a pitcher once per inning, as long as the return does not violate substitutions, visits by pitcher, or mandatory rules of play. (ii) The decision of the chairman of the series concerning the number of throws is final. (i) The total number of pitches thrown by an ambidextrous pitcher counts towards the number of pitches, regardless of the arm or combination of them that the pitcher uses to pitch. n) In the event that a player throws a required rest day and the violation is not detected until after the match, the player must rest for 4 full days from the day of his last pitch and the manager receives an automatic two-match suspension. b) Pitchers are limited to the number of throws in a single day, as shown in the table above. Pitchers must rest according to this affiliation, which results from the total number of pitches thrown on a calendar day. a) If a pitcher takes his position at the beginning of each inning or relieves another pitcher, he may throw up to eight preseason pitches for the catcher, during which the game is interrupted. The umpire may reduce this number if, in his or her discretion, there have been unnecessary delays caused by the pitcher and/or catcher.
If a sudden emergency results in a pitcher calling into the game without having enough opportunities to warm up, the umpire will allow as many pitches as the umpire deems necessary. Minor League, Little League (Major) and Intermediate (50-70) Division – A player cannot play more than one game in a day. (c) The manager must remove the pitcher when it reaches the limit specified below for its age group, but the pitcher may remain in another position in the game: j) No player may pitch for three consecutive days unless his total number of pitches for the three days does not exceed the number of pitches that do not require a break for that age category. A pitcher cannot pitch for 4 consecutive days, regardless of the number of pitches. Exception: If a pitcher reaches the limit set out in paragraph VI (c) for his league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until one of the following conditions occurs: e) Each league shall designate the scorer or other game official as the official record of the pitch count.
