Injury to a pitcher
Posted 22 June 2018 - 12:11 AM
Last out bottom of 2nd inning. Pitcher takes a line drive off the forearm/bicep. She makes the catch and ends the inning.
She is now injured. Comes out in top 4th for a pinch hitter.
An inning later she’s feeling better.
Is there ever a time that she can come back in to pitch?
I said NO. Manager wasn’t pleased. He thought an injury exempted her and she could return to pitch.

Was she removed for an injury or was she just substituted for?
In tournament play, a player removed by injury or illness needs a doctor/ medical personnel approval to continue in the game.
Actually the rule just says the doctor or medical person gets the final say. IOW they can stop you from re-entering a player but they don't need to grant permission.
Example: Player scrapes an elbow. Coach washes it off and puts a band-aid on it. He does not need to ask permission to re-enter the player, however, if the medic thinks he should not go back in the re-entry can be stopped.
