Pitch Count – To Tell Or Not?


Local Playing Rules and Conditions concerning policing Pitch Counts was updated 04/02/2020:
4.14.8   The umpire has the authority to police the pitching rule, scorers must not intervene.
What is the “pitching rule” — does this mean scorers should not ‘help’ the umpire call balls and strikes? Is it clear now whether or not scorers should inform the Umpire when senior pitchers are approaching pitching limit ?

22. Scorers NOT responsible for policing the pitch count! Baseball SA Local Playing Rules and Conditions – updated 04/02/2020 2:00PM – 4.14.8   The umpire has the authority to police the pitching rule, scorers must not intervene. Our reponsibility is to keep an accurate pitch count and report it to officials when requested. (Although, this could be interpreted as only Umpires determine balls/strikes – no matter how tempting it may be for scorers to ‘intervene.”)
