  1. David, Great podcast. Thanks for everything you’re doing to get the word out. All of the stories you hear from out of state are also happening here in SC. I have seen it first hand. The new NFHS rule will force the SC High School League to finally adopt a rule addressing pitch counts and mandatory rest. HOPEFULLY, they will adopt the Pitch Smart Guidelines, http://www.pitchsmart.org , but I fear they will adopt something weaker. I encourage everyone to contact Charlie Wentzky at charlie@schsl.org and urge them to adopt Pitch Smart in SC. It would be great if the SC Orthopedics Assoc would do the same.
