UIL approves new pitch counts

The University Interscholastic League Legislative Council met Sunday and Monday to make decisions on proposed rule changes.
The rule changes may affect UIL academics, athletics, music and overall policy.
In athletics, the legislative council approved a proposal to establish better pitching limits in high school baseball.
High school pitchers will be limited to no more than 110 pitches per day, and junior high school baseball players at 85 pitches.
Days of rest between participation will be required based on the number of pitches thrown.
If approved by the Commissioner of Education, this rule change will be enacted immediately.
Also, the council approved an amendment to the language for the Conference 6A football home field advantage pilot program.
The change gives home field advantage to the team with the higher district finish in the opening round of the playoffs. Read more in the Oct. 22 Bowie News.
