In May 2017, Training Legends launched its all-new online tournament registration system. We had hoped to transfer existing 2017 waiver information into the new system automatically, but we were unable to do so. The good news is that setting up an account is a quick and easy process, and you only need to complete it one time. Moving forward, whenever you receive a new invitation for your child(ren) to join a team you just log into your existing account to complete the acceptance process.

Do you have rules to protect pitchers? Yes we do! In order to protect the health of young arms, Training Legends is imposing limits on the number of innings a player may pitch in a tournament. The rules are below and also in our Rules Section. As soon as a player throws 1 pitch, it is considered an inning pitched. These limits are in effect for all tournaments, regardless of how many days the tournament runs. Through the first 4 games, a pitcher may throw: 8u – 12u = 6 innings 13u – 14u = 7 innings 15u = 8 innings An additional inning is added for every game after the 4th game in a tournament. For example, in the 5th game, a 12u player’s limit increases to 7 innings. In the 6th game, the 12u player’s limit increases to 8 innings. And so on. There are no limits on the number of appearances by a pitcher in a day or in the tournament. Managers from both teams must sign scorecards after the game in order to verify innings pitched by all players and to prevent issues in subsequent games. A pitcher shall receive at least 8 warm-up pitches from the mound on the initial appearance in the game and 5 warmup pitches at the start of every subsequent inning in the same game. The umpire may allow more pitches at his discretion, but not fewer pitches. At the player’s discretion, the player may choose to throw fewer warmup pitches. If pitching violations are detected, the situation will be reviewed and the tournament director, or his representative (e.g., site director), will determine the consequences. Consequences may include, but are not limited to, the following actions: Ejection of the coach and/or the player Forfeiture of the game Team ejection from the tournament Team suspension from future tournaments.
