Cancellation of the make-up games means that the home teams for those cancelled make-up games still have umpire pay for those games. Those funds should be applied to the play-off umpires.
Eddie Hallett, as umpire coordinator, will you please keep track of that?
MINOR LEAGUE PITCH COUNT MODIFICATIONS (2013 PLAY-OFFS ONLY)
The Minor League coaches have asked for a modification of the pitching rules for the play-offs due to the condensed schedule and the fact that this is the last week of baseball for many of the players. For the 2013 play-offs only, the following pitch rule shall be in effect.
7 year olds: 50 pitches per day/70 pitches per week
8 – 11 year olds: 90 pitches per day/125 pitches per week
Rest Rules: 35 pitches or less = no rest day
36 to 75 pitches = 1 day of rest
76 or more = 2 days rest
If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Don Kaiser, President
