Scorekeeping Rules Updated With Pitch Count Info

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Dec. 4, 2006) – The rules for scorekeeping in baseball have not changed much since the first system was invented more than 100 years ago.

But an addition to the scorekeeping rules for the baseball divisions of Little League can be found in the 2007 “What’s the Score?” publication. This is a must for every league in any year, but will be particularly important in 2007 as the new pitch count rules are put into effect for all baseball divisions.

Each league receives one free copy of “What’s the Score?” upon chartering. Extra copies are available for purchase from Little League International.

The new scorekeeping rule can be found here:

Extensive information on the best ways to implement the new “pitch count” regulation in baseball will continue to be released from Little League International. A roundup of the information released so far can be found at Pitch Count Resource Page
