How much should my daughter pitch?

Many parents who come to us after softball throwing injuries have requested information regarding pitch counts and recommended innings for their children. Sadly, there are no national standards listed for softball pitch counts and very limited research has been done in this area.

Baseball has been more proactive and many state and national baseball organizations have limits on pitch counts or innings pitched beginning at age 8. Visit Ortho Nebraska for more info.
