EXCEPTIONS: If a pitcher reaches a day(s) of rest threshold while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until any one of the following conditions occurs:
(1) that batter reaches base;
(2) that batter is retired; or
(3) the third out is made to complete the half-inning or the game. The pitcher will only be required to observe the calendar day(s) of rest for the threshold he/she reached during that at-bat, provided that pitcher is removed or the game is completed before delivering a pitch to another batter.
Catcher to pitcher ban: Catchers playing 4 or more innings in a game are not eligible to pitch on that calendar day.
Pitcher to catcher ban: Any pitcher who delivers 41 or more pitches in a game may not go behind the plate to play catcher for the remainder of the day.
A pitcher once removed from the mound cannot return as a pitcher.
EXCEPTION for Junior and Senior Divisions only: A pitcher remaining in the game, but moving to a different position, can return as a pitcher anytime in the remainder of the game, but only once per game.
For travel ball players, the Manager should reasonably inquire into any players who also pitched over a weekend and do their best to ensure a player is not being over-pitched.
