Just read about the playoff changes that will only effect class 5-A baseball.
I agree with some but not all of the changes. I do feel like the best of 3 will allow the better team to move on. What I don't agree with is the fact that it will only take place in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.
I also don't agree with the inning limitations they put on pitchers. I know you don't want the kid to throw his arm out but a 10 inning limit per pitcher is rediculous. And when you add to it that a pitcher can't throw consecutive days if he pitched 4 or more innings the day before, it's starting to sound like little league.
Under the new format, the first round will still be single elimination. The second and third rounds will be a best-of-three series. The semifinal and final rounds will be single elimination.
One pitcher can pitch only 10 innings in a series.
quote: 5-A Baseball
If a player threw four or more innings in one game, that pitcher cannot throw the next day.
