Pitch Smart Compliance

MPK Baseball will be fully compliant with USA Baseball’s Pitch Smart Guidelines. All coaches this season will be required to keep track and report pitch counts throughout the season. 

Health and safety of young athletes is a priority at MPK Baseball and these guidelines serve to limit the likelihood of pitching with fatigue.

All coaches will be required to comply with the Pitch Smart Guidelines and will need to sign-off opponent pitch counts after every game. An easy tool for tracking pitch counts is using the GameChanger app to handle keeping score.
