There is a lot of discussion going on about limiting the number of pitches a high school student should be allowed to throw in a baseball game. A majority of states today have issued some type of innings pitched or pitch count rule. Indiana is no exception.The IHSAA approved a “pitch count” rule. It is as follows:1-35 pitches–no days rest needed36-60–1 day rest61-80–2 days rest81-100–3 days rest101–120–4 days restThis, of course, protects a high school pitcher during the high school season, but it does not address how often this same young man may throw during the off-season. Most of the good ones play either on a traveling team or in some type of summer league. There are no set rules for those. This is a step in the right direction, but it will still take common sense to protect young arms.
“The problem is not to play one game, the first one and the second one,” said Guardiola, whose team are 25 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool. “The lack of recovery, you have to play another game with lack of physical training, physical conditioning or being prepared. That is a problem, but we have to adapt.” Guardiola said players would have to adapt as quickly as possible to games in empty stadiums. But he said: “When they were little kids they played in the school, in the square, in the street without spectators. They played well in that period so that is what they have to do.” Guardiola will go head-to-head with his former assistant Mikel Arteta at the Etihad. The Premier League was suspended in mid-March after the Arsenal boss tested positive for the coronavirus. Guardiola said he had been concerned for Arteta but that the Arsenal boss had recovered well. Guardiola says Man City are not ready for punishing Premier League return Read Also: Premier League return: the issues to resolve The City manager also said veteran midfielder David Silva, due to leave at the end of the season, would get a proper send-off from the club in the future. “It’s unfortunate that he’s going to finish his last games here without people but he’s coming back and hopefully himself, the club can organise a real farewell,” he said. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Pep Guardiola heaped praise on global healthcare workers as his Manchester City side braced for an avalanche of Premier League games over the coming weeks. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola The reigning champions are in action on Wednesday against Arsenal – the day the English top flight returns after a three-month coronavirus-enforced break. Guardiola said football was an “important part of society” but urged people not to forget the true heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Premier League teams will wear a badge on their shirts thanking Britain’s National Health Service for their hard work. “The NHS, they went to work every single day,” Guardiola told reporters by video call on Tuesday. “They deserve a huge, incredible compliment, not just the nurses, the scientists, the doctors – the cleaners. The people are there every day to make our lives easier, to put their lives at risk to save ours. “At the end it’s nice to come back. Hopefully it will go well. Hopefully we will not regret… but the real heroes of society must be these people.” With Britain badly hit by the pandemic and Guardiola’s own mother dying of the virus in Spain, the City boss was asked if he had doubts about whether the Premier League should return now. “Sometimes,” he said. “I understand we have to do it. Always you had the feeling the damage for the clubs was huge. You have to do it to reduce the impact as much as possible.” The City boss said packing 92 games into less than six weeks to finish the season would present tough challenges. Loading…

The Premier League has confirmed the appointment of Dan Hunt as its new head of elite performance. “It is clear that the delivery of the Elite Player Performance Plan is a huge priority for the Premier League and for clubs,” Hunt said on the Premier League’s official website. “I am looking forward to helping at this very exciting time, using the knowledge and skills I have gained from working with some of the top athletes and coaches in cycling, and from being involved in global competitions like the Tour de France and two Olympic Games.” Hunt, who coached Great Britain’s men to Olympic team pursuit gold at the London 2012 Games, only took up his sports director post with Team Sky in January. Since then, Team Sky rider Chris Froome has won the 2013 Tour de France, following on from his fellow Briton and team-mate Sir Bradley Wiggins’ triumph in the event a year earlier. Hunt was also employed by Team Sky as a race coach in its inaugural season in 2010, dovetailing his work on the road with his coaching position on the track within British Cycling, before focusing on the latter as London 2012 drew near. He worked with the GB women’s track endurance team that enjoyed gold medal success at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and, prior to that, in coaching and sports science roles at the Welsh Institute of Sport and University of Bath. Regarding Hunt’s new role, Premier League director of youth Ged Roddy said: “The Premier League and the clubs are in the process of developing a world-leading academy system through the implementation of EPPP and the continual assessment and improvement of performance is a hugely important part of that. “Dan Hunt has been closely involved in one the highest performing elite environments in world sport. Press Association Hunt has switched to football from cycling, having previously been the sports director at Team Sky. He will support the Premier League and its clubs in the implementation of the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) – the youth development system that was launched at the beginning of last season with the aim of developing more and better home-grown players. “He has made significant contributions to the recent successes of Team Sky, and British Cycling at both the London and Beijing Olympic Games. “He has first-hand experience of applying science, psychology, medicine and nutrition to sports development and we look forward to him bringing his skills and experience to the Premier League as we continue our work with clubs.” Football Association chairman Greg Dyke believes action is needed to address what he has described as a ”frightening trend” of the reduction in the number of English players in the Premier League, and is heading a commission that has the aim of improving the England national team’s long-term prospects. The Premier League turned down an offer from Dyke for its chairman Anthony Fry to take up a seat with the group but insists it is part of the commission, engaging with it as a collective.
The University of Wisconsin men’s cross country team will try to defend its Big Ten title for the 10th year in a row this weekend in Ann Arbor at the Big Ten conference championships.This is also the first conference championship meet for new head coach Mick Byrne.Byrne, who coached at Iona College for the past 18 years and won 17 MAAC titles during his time there, replaces Jerry Schumacher as head coach this year. Byrne knows that this meet is going to be a challenge and a different experience from what he went through previously at Iona.“I’m really looking forward to it,” Byrne said Monday at his press conference. “Obviously it’s my first championship, and the kids are excited about going to Ann Arbor and taking on Michigan on their home course. There is definitely a different feel to this. The kids are really excited, and I’m picking up on that excitement. I never got that feeling a week before a meet until now.“[Michigan is] going to throw everything at us. They’re going to have a ton of supporters there because it’s their alumni weekend, and they do not want the Badgers to win their 10th straight championship, that’s obvious.”Byrne also realizes the Badgers not only have to worry about a quality team in Michigan, but also they have the challenge of running the University of Michigan golf course, where the race will be held.“It’s a really challenging course with a lot of hills. We’ve run more hills at the end of practice in preparation for it,” Byrne said. “We’re ready for the course and the challenge.”Despite having won nine straight Big Ten championships, Byrne doesn’t think his team, especially the seniors, will take this race for granted and will come out strong.“They’re 100 percent ready. They’re seniors, and they don’t want to hand this title over to Michigan,” Byrne said. “We’re prepared for them and expect them to come at us. Seniors [Matt] Withrow and [Stuart] Eagan want to win that 10th straight title.”Along with Withrow and Eagan, the Badgers also bring sophomore Landon Peacock and junior Craig Miller, who recently finished second and seventh, respectively, in the Paul Short Invitational, into Ann Arbor this weekend.“Eagan, Withrow, Peacock and Miller are four guys that are running really well right now, and we’ve got a bunch of guys to back them up. These guys have been through the mill and know what it’s all about,” Byrne said. “There is no big game plan here. It’s just to get out and run Michigan into the ground.”
Published on October 24, 2013 at 12:18 am Contact Tyler: email@example.com As No. 3 Syracuse prepared to face No. 1 Maryland last Friday, the key word floating throughout practice was “execute.” Through 69 minutes, the Orange did exactly that and held the Terrapins scoreless while nursing a slim one-goal lead.But it takes only one minute of sloppy play to derail an otherwise masterful performance, and SU found that out the hard way.“They pulled out their goalie, and we just needed to focus on that and how to manage the ball,” sophomore midfielder Emma Russell said. “Unfortunately, we lost that in the last 49 seconds.“At the time, obviously it’s really hard to swallow something like that after controlling the game the whole time.”This weekend, the Orange (12-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) will have two opportunities to erase the sour taste from that 2-1 overtime loss, first against No. 16 Wake Forest (10-6, 0-4) on Saturday at 1 p.m. and then against Cornell (8-5, 2-2 Ivy) the following day at 2 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe only way that can happen is if the team follows through on its new one-word mantra.Finish.“The game is 70 minutes, and we played a really good game and executed all but the last minute and a half,” head coach Ange Bradley said. “But we’ve learned that all of us, myself included, could have done different things.”The Orange outplayed the Terrapins throughout the game and nearly was able to pull off the upset.For one, it played excellent defense. Maryland entered the game with 65 goals, including 13 from Jill Witmer. However, Witmer and the other Terrapin skill players failed to find the cage despite generating 16 shots.Additionally, the counterattack was responsible for setting up Karlee Farr’s second-half goal, one that Bradley used “beautiful” twice to describe.But Bradley and the rest of the team know that people will only remember the one lapse in concentration that turned the final outcome on its head.That’s why SU is making sure it doesn’t happen again.“The next time we see this team, we’ll be more rehearsed and more prepared in critical moments of the game, “Bradley said. “Even though it’s a loss in the column, when you can do that and evaluate, that’s a win.”Junior back Jordan Page was admittedly frustrated in the locker room after the game, but she too found a silver lining from the final result. In fact, she and some of the upperclassmen immediately assured everyone there’s no need to panic.“It was a really good learning and growing moment for us, realizing that game management is very important and being able to stop the ball before it gets close to the circle,” Page said. “But the whole game proves and shows all of us that we can compete with the best teams in the country, and we are one of the best teams in the country.”More painful than the loss itself was the hit Syracuse took in the ACC standings. The Orange would have moved into first place with a win, but now sits in third.That’s why Saturday’s contest with the Demon Deacons has added importance. The only way the Orange will be able to fight for the top spot is with a strong finish to the regular season.With three games remaining, that means a full 210 minutes with no mistakes.“It’s something really easily fixed. It’s just important for us mentally to stay there the whole match,” Russell said. “It just keeps replaying in your mind what happened, but all of us just said that it’s better to happen now and we can learn from it for the future.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Gurriel’s homer proved to be all the game’s scoring. The Angels had a shot in the ninth, after a leadoff single by pinch-hitter Ben Revere and a walk by Kole Calhoun. But Mike Trout hit into a double play and Justin Upton popped out.The Angels’ fifth straight defeat, equaling their season-worst, dropped them 3½ games behind the Minnesota Twins in the race for the second American League wild card spot, with nine games to play. The Angels (76-77) are under .500 for the first time since Aug. 9.Ironically, the Angels are 7-12 in September, a month that began with the additions of Upton, Brandon Phillips … and Richards.Richards, who was out five months with biceps nerve irritation, has delivered all the Angels could have hoped. In four starts, he has allowed four earned runs in 19⅓ innings, a 1.86 ERA. He’s struck out 20 and walked three.“I can’t help but think, I haven’t been here the whole year,” Richards said. “I’m trying to make the most of it now. These guys have been battling all year and that’s why we’re in the position we’re in. … Now that I’m able to contribute, I just try to go out and give them everything I got.”Which was, in his mind, more than just 85 pitches and six innings.“I always want more,” said Richards, who retired 17 of the last 18 batters he faced. “I felt good there at the end. I definitely felt like I could keep going, but what are you going to do?”Richards said Scioscia told him as soon as he came off the field that his night was over.“He had his mind made up,” Richards said. “He’s the manager. I’m not going to argue with him.”While the decision to pull Richards at that time might have frustrated Angels fans, it’s hard to expect to win a game with only two hits. Calhoun led off the game with a single, and the Angels managed just two more walks in seven innings against Justin Verlander.“We didn’t get too many good looks at him,” Scioscia said. “He did what he did against us last time (eight shutout innings)…. He’s throwing the ball very well for those guys.” PreviousThe Angels’ Ben Revere is tagged out by the Astros’ Alex Bregman after being caught in a rundown during the ninth inning of a baseball Friday’s game in Houston.

(AP Photo/David J. Phillip)ExpandHOUSTON — The Angels’ 3-0 loss to the Houston Astros on Friday night was a cruel reminder of what could have been, one that pushed the Angels a little closer to end of their postseason dreams.Garrett Richards pitched six brilliant innings, leaving Angels fans to wonder what the season might have been like if he hadn’t missed five months.But because Richards did miss those five months, and has been trying to rebuild his arm while pitching in major league games, Mike Scioscia pulled him after 85 pitches. It was just about the expected total after he had thrown 52, 63 and 74 in his previous three starts.“There was definitely a range we were trying to step him up into,” Scioscia said. “He might have (been able to start the seventh) and had a couple pitches left, but you don’t want to find out on the back side it was too much. One of the things you want to monitor is how they come out of their outing and where they are.” So Scioscia turned the game over to Yusmeiro Petit, who had been one of their best relievers all season. Petit, however, has slumped at the worst time. In the seventh inning, he gave up a three-run homer to Yuli Gurriel, the second straight outing in which he’d let a game get away. “Y has been so good,” Scioscia said. “He left a fastball over the heart of the plate and Gurriel didn’t miss it. He had a little issue with command tonight.”
