    pitcher cant pitch the 9th inning 2 days in arrow in the state tournament. sometimes you have to play 2 games on the same day. well need a lot of pitchers if a pitcher cant pitch in 2 games on the same day. need to change the state tournament format , shouldnt have play to 2 games on the same day. may want to play a series against the same team instead of playing tournament

    some times a team has to play 2 games on the same day in state tournament. may want to give a team that is 3-0 in a tournament a bye to championship day . in other words, they wouldnt have to play again until there is only one other team left .. well need a lot of pitching if a pitch can't pitch in both games. may want to play a series against the same team instead of playing a tournament

    If you notice, it says pitches per day. If I'm reading this correctly, if you have 2 games in the same day, you could have your closer close game 1 and game 2 and just add the pitches together for the total amount of pitches for that day. Hon Dines...is that right?

    As I read the rule. I'd say that is correct.

    Sure it does. It talks about days rest, not games rest. If you throw 1-45 pitches you have a day of rest. It doesn't say you have a game of rest. If you have a double header or two games against two different opponents on the same day, then why couldn't you throw your closer for example 20 pitches in game 1 and 20 pitches in game 2 for a total of 40 pitches? He would rest the next day because he's in the 1-45 range and then be able to pitch the day after that.

    I've bee a huge proponent of that for a while.

    Keep all these teams east of 77 and south of Mooresville Kanapolis
    1. Union County
    2. Mint Hill
    3. Stanley County
    4. Queen City
    5. Huntersville
    6. Concord
    7. Kannapolis
    8. Mooresville

    These are way to far drives. I feel bad for teams that have to go to Union County and Union County having to travel so far

    What is a day? if you though your last pitch of a game a 10:06 pm on Monday, at 10:07 pm on Tuesday you have had a days rest.

    BASEBALLFAN1955 All pitch counts use a calendar day of rest. If you pitch on Monday have to wait until Wednesday, Tuesday wait until Thursday, etc.

    That is the wording used in the pitch count rules, calendar days, not 24 hours.

    I got one what if a pitcher finishes a game in eastern time zone at 11 pm then drives to Chicago at 65 MPH on a 78 mile trip and pitches in another game that starts at 11:30 pm in central time zone does he technically pitch on same day?

    Dude I don't know someone will have to figure all this stuff out.

    Maybe with a slide rule?

    I wanted to post this in case anyone else is in the same boat:

    The Fort Mill Senior Legion Coach just called me and he is looking for a home and home during the week of May 29th. Please email him at tomskula1@gmail.com if you are also looking for games.

    They are right over the border and we have played them in the past. Competitive team year in and year out. Probably say the would finish in the middle of the pack in league iv or league III

    I have a quick rule question for you guys. A kid attends a NC school near the Virginia Border. Example Gates County High School, Roanoke Rapids, North Hampton County, Waren County, Stoneville, John Morehead, North Surry, Allegheny.

    From his home domicile and high school the closest base school is located in Virginia. For some high schools or players there may not be a NC team 45 min to a hour away.

    If you read through the rule book the only thing it states is that if a player is transferred across state lines both department chairmen have to sign off on it.

    Now that is for transfers. That doesn't tell you about who he first has to try out for.

    If you read both recruiting plans A and B it says you have to play for either the team closest to your domicile or high school you attend. What if that is in Virginia.

    After all these years I would assume someone would have brought that up and would be in the national rule book.

    Any insight to this? How do I I contact national to suggest put that in next year?

    Most legion programs to tryouts for senior and jr. at the same time, because most of the time, the younger (more talented) players play senior ball the beginning of the year (until cuts), and then go down to the Jr. team for the rest of the season. I would imagine, depending on where you live, you could try out a different senior team and junior team.

    carson is the closest jr team to his parents home , but kannapolis is the closest sr team to his parents home , can he play for kannapolis jr team without carson releasing him ? kannapolis has jr and sr teams, but carson has jr team, only , but he goes to south rowan high school.

    dont know american legion had fall legion. if they dont , they should start one for plays that could play JR or Sr legion the next year. . start the season the week after ws in Shelby , NC play Saturdays and Sundays , only most of players would be off from the first week in July (when the first round of playoffs are over) until late August. most of players would be off most of July ,most of August, November, January, and February, 5 months, not all the 5 months would be in arrow

    almost half of the JR teams are in area 3, doesnt make sense for a area with 27 teams to have same number of teams in the state tournament as a team with only 6 teams. something applies to SR tournament as area 4 has more teams need to realign the areas when no area will no more than one more team than another area if there are 64 teams then each area should have 16 teams. if there are 60 each area should have 15 teams , if there are 56 teams each area should have 14 teams. 52 teams each area 13 teams
