UPDATE:  Mar 31, 2017
National Pitch Count Addendum Approved
The National American Legion Baseball Committee has approved an addendum to National Rule 1.R. - Pitching Rule.  The following is the new 2017 pitch count chart:

AGE

DAILY MAX (PITCHES IN GAME)

REQUIRED REST (PITCHES)

 

 

0 Days

1 Days

2 Days

3 Days

4 Days

15-16 (recommendation)

95

1-30

31-45

46-60

61-75

76+

ALB Junior Program

105

1-30

31-45

46-60

61-75

76+

ALB Senior Program

120

1-30

31-45

46-60

61-75

76+


The remainder of the rule remains in effect, specfically, "No player may make more than two appearances as a pitcher during any consecutive three-day period."  Pitching appearance is generally defined as a "game appearance" and will not restrict a player from pitching in a game, moving to another position in the game, and then coming back to the mound to pitch in the same game (counts as one "game appearance").  In a double-header, a pitcher appearing in both games will constitute two game appearances and will require a day of rest (or more, depending on pitch count).

NALB Form 73-P (Pitch Count Record) will be used to record pitch counts and is available on the Rules and Forms page.  This record will be used and retained by coaches during regular season play.  For post-season play, the pitch count form will be filled out by the Tournament Official Scorer.

American Legion Baseball will also follow the no-pitch intentional walk rule adopted by MLB.
