[quote=“jchap”]I just got back from my son’s first tournament. There were no pitching restrictions in this two day, 9u tournament. I witnessed a pitcher from another team throw 104 pitches on Saturday and come back and throw 128 pitches on Sunday. This kid was crying on the mound, holding his hand and arm, telling his coach (I assume his Dad) that he couldn’t do it. He asked at least four times if he could come out. He was finally pulled when he couldn’t come close to throwing a strike for a few batters in a row.
Did I just see something crazy that I hopefully won’t ever see again. Or, is this kind of thing more common than I think?[/quote]
Yeah, crazy would be a good description. I’m curious to know who sanctioned the tournament. My son’s played travel for several years; each and EVERY tournament he’s ever played had pitching limitations. True most don’t have pitch limits but 3 innings normally burns a kid for the next day. Can’t believe this would be any type of sanctioned tournament.
