Welcome to the 2017 Valley District JBO Season!
Rain Out/Inclement Weather Decisions:
Please check the comments section of your scheduled game before calling about rain outs. Rain out decisions will be made by the home association by 3:00 p.m. on game days and sooner if extreme weather conditions exist. The home association is responsible for contacting both the visiting association (administrator) as well as the visiting team coach no later than 3:00 p.m on weeknights and no less than 3 hours prior to the scheduled game start on weekends. Two teams playing one another from the same association may make a decision on a game later than the 3pm decision deadline.
Within 48 hours of the scheduled game time, the winning team must report the score and pitch count for both teams in the game. Each coach needs to register in order to post scores to games that they are involved with. The team listed on top is the visitor and the bottom is home. Pitch count will be logged in the comments section in post scores area.
To help keep the reporting consistent, they must be entered using the following format:
(Visiting Team Name) #44 V. Garrett-30, #12 T. Stevens-3, #20 S. Bradbury-12 /
(Home Team Name) #4 J. Smith-28, #10 F. Johnson-25, #22 R. Frederick-20
JBO League Pitching Regulations - Junior Level
Max per Day:85
Pitch Count/Days of Rest:
1-20 (0 days of rest),
21-35 (1 day of rest)
36-55 (2 days of rest)
56+ (3 days of rest).
Exception #1: A pitcher reaching the maximum daily pitch count limit in the middle of an at bat is allowed to finish that batter without penalty.
Exception #2: A pitcher reaching a day(s) of rest threshold in the middle of an at bat is allowed to finish that batter. The pitcher will only be required to observe the calendar day(s) of rest for the threshold he/she reached during that at-bat, providing that pitcher is removed before delivering a pitch to another batter.
At all levels of play, in a double-header league contest, a pitcher may pitch in 2 games in the same day, provided they do not pitch more than 20 pitches (Midgets/Juniors) or 30 pitches (Seniors) in the first game.
Days of Rest: 1 calendar day = 1 day of rest.
Example: if a Senior pitcher pitches more than 66 pitches on Tuesday, he may not pitch again until Saturday.
Example: if a Midget or Junior pitcher pitches 48 pitches on Monday, he may not pitch again until Thursday.
Example: if any division pitcher pitches 30 pitches on Tuesday, he may not pitch again until Thursday.
Each team’s scorekeeper or designated official tracks the pitch counts. After each half inning, the scorekeepers confer with each other. If there is a conflict, home book’s count becomes official. It is the head coach’s responsibility to know when his/her pitcher needs to be removed. Pitch counts for each pitcher are logged on the game card, which is signed by each coach at the conclusion of the game.
