LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Pitch counts are a big deal for pitchers in baseball at every level and I’m not sure there’s much accuracy in what they expose. 

Michigan high school baseball has a mandatory pitch count several years removed from a 30 outs per week mandate which was eliminated.

I hope they bring that back. Pitch counts mess up games too much and they can be inaccurate more so than 30 outs per week. 

I hope the pitch counts at the high school level are eliminated in some manner because they simply do not have any real major upside that I can see.
