Tuesday Evening 12 year old pitcher, pitches 67 pitches which equal 4 days of rest.
Coach states that because he hit his 65th pitch he could finish the batter and require 3 days of rest.
As I read the rules for pitch count and rest, exceeding the pitch limit is stated only for the maximum amount of pitches a pitcher can throw according to their age, 12 year old would be 85 and if he was in the middle of an at bat the pitcher could finish pitching to that batter.
Am I missing language somewhere that states you can exceed a lower pitch count / days of rest to finish the current batter?
Thank you for your time in advance.
