In efforts to reduce arm injuries from too much throwing, sports medicine experts in conjunction with USA Baseball have developed pitch count limits for young throwers based on age. For a 12 year old pitcher, the recommendation is no more than 85 pitches per game. The same authorities have also developed recommendations for the number of rest days between pitching performances based on age and number of pitches thrown in the previous game.For 12 year old pitchers who threw 21-40 pitches in a game, 1-2 calendar days of rest without pitching is the best advice.If the 12 year old pitcher threw 41-60 pitches in one game, 2 calendar days of rest and one game (or 3 total days of rest) is the guildeline.For those 12 year old pitchers throwing 61 or more pitches in a game, the rest recommendation is 3 calendar days plus a game (or 4 total days of rest).
