Pitch count regulations are in place to help protect the health of pitchers, but they bring a host of additional administrative burdens that go far beyond just counting the pitches thrown in a game. On a daily basis, coaches need to know who’s available to pitch, who’s unavailable, when can they pitch again and they need this information at their fingertips. League officials on the other hand need oversight tools to verify that teams are adhering to the pitch count regulations so they can help ensure player safety. Leaving these processes up to coaches and league volunteers takes a lot of time and distributing this information to everyone involved takes even more time. But there’s a simple, automated solution: PitchKount.
PitchKount is an easy to use, comprehensive management system that provides coaches and league officials with all the information they need to adhere to the pitch count regulations and verify that teams are in compliance. PitchKount eliminates human error in determining mandatory days of rest, saves time and prevents infractions from occuring.
With PitchKount, nothing changes in the dugout for coaches as they can continue to score their games and count pitches as they always have. Coaches have the freedom to use an electronic scoring application, a traditional score book or a hand-held clicker; it’s up to them. After each game, a PitchKount game report is input so the system can automatically do all the rest.
