An interesting study and story this past week from, called "Numbers Game: The implementation and impact of pitch count rules in high school baseball," which reviewed pitch counts that were instituted by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association this year. 
"Imagine. Two outs. Top of the seventh inning. There are zeros across the board, as the home team's pitcher is one out away from a perfect game. The coach checks his clicker and sighs. He trots out of the dugout, calls timeout to the home plate umpire and makes his way to the mound for a pitching change.  "Sorry son, I've got to take you out," the coach says to his pitcher. "You just hit 105 pitches. I have no choice. It's for your own good."The coach takes the ball, pats his pitcher on the backside and sends him to the dugout one out short of a lifetime memory. The pitcher strides to the bench, tosses his glove and wonders what harm a few more pitches could do.  More details
