Finally pitch-count restrictions for high school baseball

We’ve seen the stories of high school pitchers throwing well over 100 pitches in a game. At last, the National Federation of State High School Associations Baseball Rules Committee has approved a revised pitching policy that will require state associations impose a pitching restriction policy for the 2017 season based on the number of pitches thrown in a game. Here is an article explaining the rule change from the Los Angeles Times’ Eric Sondheimer.

Doing their Patriotic duty

We thought we’d bring you another nice article by L.A. Times high school sports reporter, Eric Sondheimer. This time, a feel-good story about a couple of high school baseball players who are going on to a new stage in their careers, in service to their country.

Straight Outta Loyalty

You may know we are big fans of the L.A. Times’ Eric Sondheimer who writes the high school sports beat for the paper. This article, about Compton Freshman Sean Harlston, is refreshing and inspirational. Let’s all encourage and follow Sean’s career in our hearts and minds.

Great young men

After reading the Los Angeles Times’ Eric Sondheimer’s latest article about some of the more impressive high school football players in the L.A. area you may get goosebumps, or want to stand up and applaud…or maybe both. This is proof that there still is a lot of good out there and that youth sports can have a positive impact.

An example of overbearing parents?

This article recently ran in the Los Angeles Times about a Southern California high school where sports parents seem to feel they can/should influence coaching decisions. It probably happens everywhere.

Winless team headed to playoff

And by winless, we mean 0-26. But it happened in Los Angeles this week. High school beat reporter Eric Sondheimer of the L.A. Times has the story.

High School Camaraderie

The Los Angeles Times’ Eric Sondheimer, writes the local L.A. high school sports beat. And while this article is focused on the city he covers, it is applicable to any city where student-athlete transfers occur. We all know that college sports are big money and, therefore, there’s a lot at stake at the high school level and that athletes must do what is best for their careers. But it is also nice to hear stories such as these and think about the fun and purity that can be high school sports.
