Pitching Rules No more revert

This is good and how it should be.  Little League uses the revert rule stuff and for the life of me I can't understand the logic behind it...especially since the rules are in place for arm safety.  A pitch thrown is a pitch thrown so pitchers shouldn't get to throw say 50 but only get charged for 43. This will also force coaches to make decisions about pulling a pitcher in the middle of a batter or not. Good for TSSAA for getting it right!

What about warm up pitches in the bullpen and the 8 pitches the pitcher gets when coming into the game?  Those should be counted too if we are truly concerned with arm safety.

My observation has always been that the average high school pitcher begins to tire at between 60-75 pitches.  Yes, the top tier guys may be able to reach 90 pitches before their mechanics begin to erode but we are talking about the average high school pitcher.  What high school teams need are strike throwers that are not afraid of throwing to contact and allowing their defense the opportunity to make plays.  Good coaching can take position players and develop them into strike throwers.

If that's true, why haven't they done that in the past?
