Correction to Baseball Rule 2.00 – A PITCH

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (July 13, 2011) - In the 2011 baseball rulebook, Rule 2.00 – A PITCH is amended to read as follows:

"A PITCH is a ball delivered to the batter by the pitcher. For the purpose of maintaining a pitch count, an illegal pitch shall count as one pitch, even if a pitch is not actually thrown."
