F.If a pitcher reaches the daily pitch limit imposed in Rule 20B above for his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until that batter reaches base or is put out. All pitches (including those pitched to finish the last batter) count against the weekly pitch count.

G.If a pitcher reaches the weekly pitch limit imposed in Rule 20B above for his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until that batter reaches base or is put out.

H.For intentional walks, the pitcher must throw the pitches to that batter. No player may be intentionally walked more than once per game.

I.The official scorekeeper will track each pitcher’s number of pitches as well as the time the pitcher completes his final pitch and physically leaves the mound in the official score book which both coaches must sign at the conclusion of each game.

J. Should a pitcher exceed the required daily or weekly pitch count limit the head coach and team may be be penalized. These penalties may include but are not limited to letter of reprimand, suspension, or game forfeiture.

Offending Coaches may appeal each penalty before the league board for final determination.

Clarity when games are being made up

The make up games are announced and have been changed on Village.  The only question left is what time on the 27th will the Owls/Dodgers play.  Games resume last Sunday of Spring Break.  Most teams will be playing 3 games this coming week and pitching will certainly be needed fast!
