American Legion makes pitch count, playoff changes

...American Legion baseball head Gary Stone announced this month it is lowing its maximum pitch count limit to 105 pitches, down from 120. This will require four days of rest between appearances. The minimum requirement for four days rest is now 81, bumped from 76, while 61-80 pitches will require three days of rest.

American Legion baseball shortens games, adjusts pitch limits

...The switch to mandatory seven-inning games won’t begin until state-tournament play, meaning Legion zones may still play nine-inning games during the regular season and in zone tournaments.

“Almost every high school and Legion program plays seven-inning games during the regular season so this change will create more consistency across the nation,” said Legion baseball committee chairman Gary Stone in announcing the changes.

Maine’s zone and state tournaments traditionally have involved nine-inning contests, with some zones — including the eastern-Maine based Zone 1 — playing a mix of seven- and nine-inning games during the regular season.
