Pitch Count Limits
The eligibility of a player to pitch in a Little League is governed by a tiered pitch count that is tied to the number of pitches thrown in a game. The pitch count determines how many days of rest are required before said player may pitch again.

Equipment / Gear

Review our equipment guidelines to learn about helmets, bats, face masks, etc.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the sudden onset of an abnormal and lethal heart rhythm, causing the heart to stop beating and the individual to collapse. SCA is the leading cause of death in the U.S. afflicting over 300,000 individuals per year. All players and their parents should review the Sudden Cardiac Pamphlet annually, prior to participating in an interscholastic athletic activity.


A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth. This fast movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain and sometimes stretching and damaging the brain cells. Review the
Concussion Fact Sheet for Parents and the Batters Helmet Fact Sheet to learn how to lower a player's chance of getting a concussion.

Child Protection Program
The purpose of the
Little League's Child Protection Program is to prevent child abuse from occurring through required screenings, training and education, awareness, and mandated reporting of abuse. Little League strives to create an environment that is as safe as possible both on and off the field. Little League does not tolerate any type of abuse against a minor, including, but not limited to, sexual, physical, mental, and emotional (as well as any type of bullying, hazing, or harassment). All chartered Little League programs must adhere certain requirements, including:

  • Complete background checks on managers, coaches, Board of Directors members and any other volunteers who provides regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access, to or contact with, players or teams. Prohibit anyone with any offenses that would disqualify them as participant.
  •  Require all volunteers to complete Abuse Awareness Training annually.
  •  Report child abuse to the proper authorities within 24 hours.

Injury Reporting
If a player is injured during a game, practice, or other league-approved activity that may or may not require medical attention, league officials (i.e. manager/coach/designee) should follow these steps:

  • Administer any initial first aid treatment (if necessary).
  • Be sure to have the player’s Medical Release Form onsite or easily accessible so anyone who may treat the player is aware of any allergies or special conditions.
  • Contact the player’s parent or legal guardian if they are not onsite at the time of the incident.
  • Document the incident with as much detail as possible the ASAP Incident/Injury Tracking Report. Send a copy of the form to the MCLL Safety Officer.
  • If medical attention is needed, be sure to have an AIG Accident Notification Claim Form on hand to provide to the family and explain our league’s Accident Insurance is through AIG. Learn more about the LL Insurance.
  • If a player misses seven (7) or more continuous days of participation, a physician or other accredited medical provider must give written permission for a full return to play.
  • In cases involving a possible concussion, the league must adhere to their respective state law with respect to removal of the player and return to play protocols after being released by a physician. It is recommended a player suspected of sustaining a concussion be removed for at least the remainder of that day and then comply with their respective state law for return to play guidelines.
