BLOOMINGTON, Il. (KMOX) – The group that regulates high school sports in Illinois is proposing limits on how many pitches a baseball pitcher can throw in a game and how much rest they must receive between appearances.
An advisory committee from the Illinois High School Association has proposed capping pitchers at 115 pitches a day and requiring four days rest before they could pitch again.
The board of directors is expected to consider the limits in October. If approved, the limits would take effect in the 2017 season.
