For the purpose of this rule an inning counted toward a catcher limit is defined as any part of an inning, including a single warm-up pitch.
Discussion: In theory, this means a player can catch for 2 innings and then still pitch up to 40 pitches in the same game. When factoring allowable limits, compounded by warm ups for each position, this is a considerable amount of use of a players arm. The rule is designed to protect young arms; it is imperfectly drafted because it cannot factor long or short innings when considering the number of throws a catcher is making. Coaches should consider the spirit of the rule and the protection it is intended to give players in making decisions about what their players do.

We’re announcing that for the Spring 2018 season Dana Point Youth Baseball will be offering a Select/Open Team for our 10U Mustang players.
The Select/Open Team will be comprised of 10U players from DPYB who have the desire to play a more competitive brand of Pony Baseball in a league format.
The team will play other Select/Open Baseball teams from Orange County at home and away games twice a week (weekday & Saturday games) from March through May.
If your son is interested in playing on the DPYB Select/Open 10U team for the Spring season or if you have any questions, please contact Dan Ignosci at GoDPYB@cox.net
Will the players of the Select team also play on a regular spring team? No, the Board felt it would too taxing on the families to suggest they participate on two league teams.
Who will be the head coach/manager for the 10U Select team? That hasn’t been determined as of yet. The Board just agreed to offer a Select option the night of December 5. Our Mustang Commissioner has sent out an email to the approved Managers and is attempting to confirm their interest. We are working diligently to determine the potential Select Managers, so then the Board can approve who leads the team. As soon as the Select Manager has been determined, this page will be updated.
Your expressing interest in the Select program prior to evals will not commit your son to play Select baseball. After the Manager is confirmed and potential players are notified, parents will have a brief opportunity to decline to participate.
Please be patient with the league as we take our inaugural step into offering Select baseball. The details and answers above are subject to change with Board approval.
