Pinto Coach Pitch Rules

Walks will not be allowed. After 4 balls to a batter the batting team’s coach will pitch a maximum of 3 pitches and the hitter will either strikeout or hit the ball in play.

The pitcher of record will field the pitcher position standing on the mound on either side of the coach pitching. The manager or coach pitching must get out of the way of a batted ball, and once the ball is put in play the coach must leave the field when possible. If the manager or coach is hit by a batted ball, the ball is dead and the hitter and each base runner will be awarded one base.

Manager or coach must have one foot in contact with the pitching rubber when pitching to the batter standing up. Coach may not kneel and must throw overhand.

Note: the pitcher cannot be substituted defensively with another player for the coach pitching process. If so, this would be considered a pitching change. The coach will throw up to 3 pitches regardless of the count on the hitter. For example if a batter walks with 2 strikes he will still get 3 pitches unless he fouls off 3rd pitch. A hit by pitch from the coach does not award first base and counts against one of the 3 coach pitches
