The Pitch Smart Compliance Application may be submitted with additional resources. Examples of additional resources may include the organization's official pitching rules, arm care data, or anything else the submitter deems relevant and appropriate supplementary documents. However, this is not required.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the Pitch Smart program and for your organization's commitment to the betterment of our game through the health and safety of our youth. The Pitch Smart Compliance Committee will be in touch with the appropriate organizational personnel in the next several weeks to discuss the organization's inclusion in the Pitch Smart Compliance program.
All applications and organizations will be reviewed by the Pitch Smart Compliance Committee, inclusive of Major League Baseball and USA Baseball personnel. The Pitch Smart Compliance Committee reserves the right to determine the appropriate level of compliance for which the organization is the best fit. However, by submitting this application, the organization is not guaranteed acceptance to one of the levels of compliance. The organization may be contacted during the review process and will be contacted upon final decision of the Pitch Smart Compliance Committee. The level of compliance in which the organization enters the Pitch Smart Compliance program must be agreed upon, and upheld, by both parties.
