Question posed to me by a coach in my league if there is a player who is 10 years old his maxumim pitches allowed is 75 if He turns 11 durring the season is he allowed to throw 85 after his 11th birthday or is it his age when the season starts this is not clearly adressed in the rule book as i can see anyone know the answer?
I assume this is Little League ball.
At the beginning of the season, each player should khow what his/her "League Age" is. It is specified in the rules.
For purposes of eligibility for tournaments and pitch count limitations, the league age is what matters, and you retain that designation for the duration of the season. So in your case, your player will have a pitch count max of 75 the whole season.
That is why some LLWS/Majors TV fans get "confused" when they hear announcers note that a player is 13 years old. True, chronologically, but LL league/age 12. Announcer failing to note or explain the league/age cut/off date.
LLWS being held in August, a player turning 13 on/after May 1st.
