MANAGERS: Important Information Regarding Score Keeping and Pitch Counts

As a result of a recent situation that occurred in an Alameda Little League Major Division game, we have decided to immediately ask all Official Scorekeepers in Major, AAA, and AA Divisions (Home Team Scorekeeper) to:

1) ANNOUNCE THE PITCH COUNTS OF ANY AND ALL PITCHERS EVERY HALF INNING, AS WELL AS THE CURRENT SCORES.

2) BE AWARE THAT HE/SHE MAY HAVE NOT RECORDED THE CORRECT INFORMATION AND, IN THE EVENT THAT HE/SHE ACCEPTS ANY INFORMATION PRESENTED, MAYCORRECT THE OFFICIAL SCOREBOOK ACCORDINGLY.

The Official Scorekeeper must provide the current pitch count for any pitcher when requested by either Manager or any umpire. In the event no announcement is made or heard, the Manager/s remain responsible for the pitch count and the rules that govern them, including limits by age. Please refer to Regulation VI-Pitchers, Page 37-38, Little League 2013 Baseball Official Regulations and Rules.
