Does any baseball authority, league recommend monitoring catcher's workload and pitch count? I DO NOW. My son pitches and catches, and even with careful monitoring, he sometimes has a sore arm after catching vs. pitching. I try to maintain a policy of pitch counts and IP-caught to monitor my catchers, and to refrain from using a player as a pitcher and catcher in the same day or same game to avoid overwork and overstressing the arm. Catchers will often work more IP and throw back more pitches back to the pitchers than pitchers and their pitch counts. How many catchers have arm trouble? Any research info from ASIM or anyone else? Little League in 2008 now recommends not allowing players to go from catching to relief pitching in the same game. What do your experts think? I worry about pitchers who also catch especially in tournaments where multiple games are played in the same day and in consecutive days without allowing for proper rest days for pitchers and catchers to rest and recover. Hard one to correctly decide upon.
