  3. Recorder to provide current pitch count for any pitcher when requested by manager or umpire.  Managers responsible for knowing when pitcher is to be removed.
  4. Recorder should inform game UIC when pitcher reaches limit and UIC then informs manager that pitcher has reached game limit and is to be removed.
  5. If a pitcher reaches his/her limit while facing a batter, that pitcher may continue pitching to that batter until one of following three conditions occur:  1) batter reaches base; 2) batter is put out; or 3) the 3rd out is made to complete a half inning.
