Beginning in 2016, pitchers like Fruita Monument’s Devon Canup will be on a strict pitch count. The Colorado High School Activities Association approved a 110-pitch limit during its winter meeting on Thursday.

New year, new rules

CHSAA votes to add new regulations during meeting

A proposal imposing stricter pitch-count limits for high school baseball players passed Thursday during the Colorado High School Activities Association winter legislative council meeting in Aurora. The rule will take effect in 2016.
Pitchers will be allowed a maximum of 110 pitches during a start, and three days of rest will be required after a start of more than 86 pitches. Nonvarsity pitchers will be limited to 85 pitches. Different pitching benchmarks will require specific amounts of rest.
Previously, pitchers could pitch no more 12 innings in three days, but no pitch-count limits were in place. CHSAA said the new rule was enacted largely to protect young arms from an increasing number of arm injuries linked to higher pitch counts.
