Pitchers will not be permitted to exceed the maximum daily allowable number of pitches in any two day period.

(7) Once a player assumes the position of pitcher, they cannot catch for the remainder of the day.
(8) Pitchers will be permitted to finish the batter if his or her maximum pitch limit has been reached for that calendar day.
(A) When a pitcher reaches the maximum number of pitches allowed for a
threshold (see table above), he can complete the at-bat without the penalty on days of rest, as long as he does not pitch to another batter. In this situation, the number of pitches corresponding to the threshold reached will be indicated on the pitching log.
The coach or manager needs to acknowledge this to the umpire at this moment prior to the next pitch. Umpire would then notify the scorekeeper.

(12) A pitcher who is removed from the mound during a game shall not be permitted to return to pitch in the same game, even if the pitcher is retained in the game at another position.
(13) Any violation of any part of the pitch count rule, the result is the Head Coach is ejected from the current game and receives an additional game suspension.

If Pitcher “A” is the starting pitcher of a game and has a pitch count below the first threshold, Pitcher “A” can then be used as a pitcher again for that particular game but considering he will be carrying the number of pitches thrown when the game stopped. This applies for a game that is resumed on the same day or on the next day.
For example, if Pitcher “A” threw 30 pitches at 15U Nationals, he will then be allowed to throw a maximum of 65 pitches when the game resumes. If Pitcher “A” had thrown 36 pitches when the rain started, he would not be eligible to pitch if that game is re-scheduled for the next day as he needs his full day of rest. If the game is resumed during the same day, he can then come back as pitcher while carrying his pitches.
(16) A player playing in a division other than their own age group shall pitch based on the pitch count of the lower aged division.

a 18U playing at 15U is subject to the 15U rules.
5.10 (c) The manager or coach may make a 2nd visit to the mound while the same batter in at bat in order to remove the pitcher.
IMPORANT PITCHING INFORMATION (ALL MINOR DIVISIONS)

In the event that a coach deliberately over pitches his pitcher, the result is the Head Coach is ejected from the current game and receives an additional game suspension.
INFORMATION ON COMPILING A PITCHER'S - "OUT" RECORD
An "OUT" is listed against a pitcher's record during HIS ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT ONLY. Although all runners who may be on base upon a pitcher's removal are chargeable to that pitcher in determining won or lost records... ALL OUTS ON THE SAID RUNNERS SHALL BE LISTED AND CHARGED TO THE PITCHING RECORD OF THE SUBSTITUTE PITCHER OF ACTION WHEN THE OUTS OCCUR.
NO PITCHER SHALL BE SUBJECT TO PENALTY for exceeding the out limitations through: (a) a scorer's error in compiling records: or (b) should the limit be exceeded on a DOUBLE or TRIPLE play on the pitcher's last out.
NOTE: The extras OUT (S) as circumstances may provide in multiple play sequences ARE NOT CHARGEABLE TO ANY SUCCEEDING PITCHER. Scorers MUST NOTE the fact on the pitching records that extra out(s) over the maximum allowed were the results of a double or triple play action.
   
   OFFICIAL RULES OF BASEBALL- CANADIAN CONTENT cc11
7.04 Protesting Games
Each league shall adopt rules governing procedure for protesting a game, when a manager
claims that an umpire’s decision is in violation of these rules. No protest shall ever be permitted on judgment decisions by the umpire. In all protested games, the decision of the League President shall be final.
Even if it is held that the protested decision violated the rules, no replay of the game will be ordered unless in the opinion of the League President the violation adversely affected the protesting team’s chances of winning the game.
Rule 7.04 Comment:
Whenever a manager protests a game because of alleged misapplication of the rules the protest will not be recognized unless the umpires are notified at the time the play under protest occurs and before the next pitch, play or attempted play. A protest arising on a game-ending play must be filed before the home plate umpire leaves the field.
As it relates to 3.02(c) a protest shall not be allowed on a play where the 18 inch pine tar rule is violated.
As it relates to 9.01(b)(3) the official scorer shall make note of the exact situation at time of protest and if a game is to be resumed from the point of protest that the game resume with exactly the same situation as just before the protested play.
As it relates to General Instructions to Umpires, Do not allow criticism to keep you from
studying out bad situations that may lead to protested games. Carry your rule book. It is better to consult the rules and hold up the game ten minutes to decide a knotty problem than to have a game thrown out on protest and replayed.
