With the season starting Pitch counts will be a subject as they are every year.  Pitch counts are set by Little League International based upon feedback from medical professionals.  Pitch counts are designs to protect kids arms from long term damage.  This is especially important for young arms that are still growing.  

It will be coaches will pull pitches are times to save them for the next game (rest days) or when a kid still feels good, but this entire rule is set around safety.  The only addition to the numbers below is that a kid can finish the batter they are currently facing (for example if a 11 year old hits 85 pitches during the middle of a batter, they can finish that batter).  

Here are the pitch count limits and below that is the number of days required based upon the number of pitches thrown.
