PITCHING RULES

1) “On the backswing ball cannot be above 90 degree created by hip-shoulder ball”.. Enforced by Tournament Organizers, not umpires. If you have any question on what is legal/illegal call Sal Guerriero (610 389 4830) or email me a video. The last thing I want is to call someone illegal, or to allow someone who is Illegal to pitch. Been on both side of that issue more times than I want to remember. Nothing more frustrating.

On 4th illegal pitch, pitcher will be removed from pitching for that game. Can play other positions and come back as a pitcher another game.
