Anyone ever heard of a pitch count violation for a JV player causing a forfeit for a district championship?? Last night it happened!

Houston defeated Collierville on the field last night, 5-2. now the game is under protest over JV pitch count.

A JV pitch count?  How would/did that affect a varsity game?

6. The pitch count will apply to any player who pitches and is cumulative each day. JV pitch count and high school varsity pitch count are linked together. Example: a pitcher who pitches 45 Varsity pitches on Monday is not permitted to pitch JV on Tuesday.

He pitched on Saturday, I guess if he throws 80 pitches its 4 days rest. He threw yesterday. He started a game earlier in the season, so is he technically a JV player?

Yes,you can play both BUT one counts to the other also.

Coach mistake.

Why are you still playing JV games the week of the district tournament?

Heck if you've got enough kids in the program to do that, that's awesome. Give the young kids as many games as you can.

 

The better question, IMO, is why you'd be playing a kid you think you might LEGITIMATELY need for districts in a JV game that week.

Exactly.It amazes me how every year in any sport a Head Coach doesnt know the rules.Whether lots tranfer,eligibility or even a JV/Varsity pitch count and its costs the whole team advancement.Its all in black and white!Just take some time and read the rules.

And then the the folks down in Hermitage let the kid from Powell pitch, even though there is irrefutable evidence that shows he wasn't eligible to pitch. Unbelievable.

Bearden’s coach should have never signed the paper saying that the pitch count was 105. That’s what tssaa is always going to go by. I don’t agree with pitching him either but it clearly states in the rules and on that form that it is what is going to be the official pitch count.
