Starting with the 2007 season, Little League Baseball will limit how many pitches baseball pitchers are allowed to throw. Doctors are seeing more young people injured from playing “throwing sports” such as baseball, softball and football. When kids play too hard for too long, they can cause wear on their joints, bones and muscles, and can injure themselves. The Little League will limit pitches according to age for kids 7 to 17 years old. Younger kids will be limited to 75 pitches per day, and the oldest will be limited to 105 pitches per day. The new regulations do not apply to female softball players.
