Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Pitching Rules Change

Updated Friday December 2, 2016 by John Hand.

Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken is now making the official move to align more closely with Little League when it comes to pitch count.  Pitching limits will be on players from ages 7 through 18.  Rules can be found here: 2017 Babe Ruth Official Pitching Rules


These rules are tournament specific, and leagues are permitted to use local league rules for your recreation seasons defined by the Babe Ruth rules and handbook.  This is a first step towards a much broader change to pitching rules in youth baseball and there are still more changes to come.
