Game officials are supposed to take action to prevent Protests.
So, it's the Official Scorer's/Pitch Counter's job to make sure the pitcher does not exceed his/her max pitch count.

It is also the manager's responsibility to remove the pitcher before violating the pitch count.


As for the ER saying the Manager should be suspended for the first Regular Season game next year, I guess the ER Janitor is crazier than some of the ones in Williamsport !!!

I think that's still a bit of a gray area. Intervene or don't intervene, In this instance the official score keeper pitch counter stopped the game one pitch over the max as I believe she was double checking her numbers.  

 

Is having the count on the scoreboard in 12" numerals (and sometimes in the dugout like at WP) intervening?  An obvious way of continuously making the count public. It shouldn't be a secret. 

 

Reg VI says the manager must know when his pitcher needs to be removed.  He can do that without having to keep the count himself. Why have a pitch counter if you're going to make the manager keep the count?  (BTW I did it with tally counters - one for my pitcher and one for the other team's pitcher).

I had a manager lose track of pitch counts last week during an elimination game and his pitcher exceeded the max. They lost the game, but I called it in anyway and was told by ER to notify the league president that the suspension should carry over into next season.

 

I found that interesting as I would have thought once they were eliminated it was a done deal. In fact I came close to not even calling it it in to report.  

 

Why didn't the pitch counter notify him? That's his job.  Suspend the pitch counter too.

 

But wait. The tournament rules supersede  regulation VI so there is no pitch counter.

 

But wait, the official scorer has to enter the pitch counts on the affidavit so who has the official pitch count?

You pretty much got it right, but the kill date is for regular season to have first place determined by, something like May 30th and then TOCs would start June 4th....There's always around a 10 day break between District TOCs and AllStars.

Makeups and tiebreakers make teams go past the kill date sometimes, so teams do go into TOC with pitchers on days of rest still...but the intent of a kill date is to have fresh pitching for all.

Not sure, but I think it means the DA makes sure all of the leagues' Regular Seasons and their District TOC are completed at least 4 days prior to the start of District All Stars.
That way, all the pitchers have met their rest requirements by the start of the Tournament.

Of course, I could be wrong (wouldn't be the first time)! B)

Our district has a kill date for TOCs, every pitcher comes in with full rest.

Yes, and it will be recorded on the Affidavit so there is no escaping that one.

Last game of the year if meaningless is a "Where would you like to play" game.....Stars sit the bench, in some cases for the first time all year.


I did that every year.
Everyone met MPR.
It's not hard.
