Cal Ripken Tourny Pitcher Rest Days

Hi all:

 

reading through the Cal Ripken tournament rules, I don't see that any rest days are required.

 

Does anyone have an opposite rule reference?

 

Thanks,

 

JoeG

    Was it something like this?

     

    Pitching Recommendations

    Ripken Baseball does not have specific pitching limitations at our tournaments. We do, however, provide recommendations for coaches and parents to follow not only for your time at our tournament, but for your entire season. The responsibility ultimately lies with coaches and parents to ensure that each player?s health and development is maintained properly. One rule that we do employ at our tournaments is as follows: Once a pitcher leaves the mound, he cannot return to pitch in that game. For further recommendations on pitching limitations, please see the information sheet we have compiled at the back of the packet to help educate those who monitor the players.

     

    ============

    The information sheet includes tables for Max Number of Pitcher based on ages and also Number of Days Rest based on Number of Pitches Throw.

    The Tables come from the USA Baseball Medical & Safety Advisory Committee.

    There is no rest required in the CR tournament.  There is a max innings clause however, that being 6 innings every 2 games, with the 1st game 'rolling off'.  For example:

     

    Joe pitches 2 innings in Game #1, he can pitch 4 in game #2.

     

    Lets say he pitches 3 in game #2.  He can then pitch 3 innings in game #3.

     

    Lets say he pitches 1 inning in game #3.  He can then pitch 5 innings in game #4.

     

    Clear?

    I didn't see that in the information I got from the Ripken Website on Tournament Rules? (what I posted above)

     

    Where is that rule located?

    It's been awhile, several years since I called Cal Ripken ball; but when I did, for Tourney rules, Cranberry is right. A pitcher can pitch a maximum of 6 innings in 2 consecutitive games. He can pitch 3 in every single game played. If he pitches 4 in game one he can only pitch 2 in game 2. But if he doesn't pitch at all in game 2 after pitching 4 in game 1, in game 3 he can pitch 6.

     

    Just remember this simple rule: 6 total innings in 2 consecutitive games.

    Like I said, if that's the rule, fine, it just wasn't listed on the "Tournament Rules" and "Information Sheet" that I found on the CR Tournament Website.

    I gave the rule for the official CR 12U tournament.  I think Rich nailed it, those rules are for Cal's own tournament.

     

    Right answer, wrong question!

    Are you sure !!!

     

    The original post said ?reading through the Cal Ripken tournament rules, I don't see that any rest days are required.?

     

    So, how can you be sure if the post was about the CR 12U Tournament or a Cal Ripken Tournament at one of his facilities?

    Maybe he?s heading for Aberdeen or Myrtle Beach !!!     ;o)

    So, they just have innings and not number count? What is the most that you have heard of one pitcher pitching in one game? Age 12/13?
