Smart Pitch Counter was developed to help Managers, Coaches and Parents keep track of Pitches and have quick answers readily available including Pitch Count, Pitches Remaining, Required Days Rest, and Remaining Pitches Until another Required Days Rest. Most Tournaments and Leagues have adopted either the Pitch Smart Limits sponsored by MLB.com and USA Baseball OR set their own Limits with the purpose of reducing Arm injuries. Smart Pitch Counter should help in this goal. We have decided to offer this APP at the App Store minimum of 99 Cents and without Ads.
Smart Pitch Counter works by a User either Selecting an Age or Entering the Maximum Pitches Allowed for Each Day of Required Rest. The User has the choice to Select the Type of Counter that is Best for the Pitching Rules for their Baseball Game. We offer two types counters: One Called Pitch Smart Limits that are ready with a Tap of an Age. The Other called Custom Pitch Limitslets the User Customize the Pitching Limits for Games Played with Different Pitching Rules.
