Pitch Count

We all know that 100 is about the max for Curt Schilling, but what about your little ace? To help prevent Little League Elbow, follow the following guidelines: Children should not pitch more than twice a week and should allow two days rest between outings. Pitchers should not pitch curve balls or other kinds of breaking pitches until they are 14 years old and shaving.

13-14 yrs: 70-80 pitches

15-16 yrs: 80-85 pitches
