Don’t feel at all like you’re alone! I’m telling you that its difficult finding the pitching limitations for a lot of states!
I know a lot of people get angry at me because I often come off as being anti-coach or anti-“expert”, but here’s a perfect example of why I’m like that. Many would just advise you to ask your coach, and many others would demonstrate their expertise by reciting what they THOUGHT was the rule, and I guarantee you that more often than not, they’d be wrong. That doesn’t make them bad people though, it just makes them NORMAL!
Its virtually impossible to memorize every word of every rule, and what very often happens if you don’t look it up for yourself, is exactly what happened to TheUnDiscovered. He got it partly right, but as you can see, the difference changed the meaning immensely.
Go to http://www.nfhs.org/stateoff.aspx and find your state association’s link. Then go to that web site and look around! You’d be amazed at how many student athletes and their parents never do that, then end up trusting what someone tells them. Don’t be like that! Find out for yourself, and encourage your friends to do the same!
When you get there, click on every link you can find too! IHSA like most other state assns, not only has a lot of great information about sports, they also have a store!
And if you come across the pitching limitation rules, don’t forget me!
