Big Time Coach Pitch Counter is designed to track pitches and innings for players of all ages. As arm injuries increase among youth pitchers, Big Time Coach has developed an application that will help coaches and parents manage the days of rest needed. Little League International days rest rules have been incorporated into the app to help coaches become more knowledgeable about the game requirements. Users may also create custom days rest for tournament play, other youth league rules and the ability to utilize the most current research to best ensure the safety of all youth pitchers.
Beyond managing days rest you have the ability to track the number of innings and pitches thrown by player. An often-overlooked aspect of tracking pitches is the number of pitches thrown during a practice or Bull Pen session. These pitches thrown in the practice setting can play a critical role in adding to the risk of arm injuries to pitchers. Big Time Coach Pitch Counter addresses this gap, and provides new insight into the process of pitching, tracking and rest.

Updates / Bug Fixes
Our coaches found an issue with the new Group Bull Pen function that would not clean up properly. They also asked if we could move directly to the pitchers listing once the group bull pen has been dismissed. We have updated the application to take care of those requests.
Also addressed a few minor bugs that we found in our review of the app.
