LHSAA cites "honest human error" in Notre Dame title game

Posted: Updated:

The LHSAA cites "honest human error" on the part of a pair of independent pitch counters who allowed Notre Dame and Claiborne Christian pitchers in last week's state title baseball games to exceed the 125-pitch limit.

Upon video review of Saturday's Notre Dame vs Saint Thomas Aquinas game, Notre Dame pitcher, Garret Miller was found to have thrown 132 pitches in the Pios 9-inning Division III championship game. Seven pitches over the allowed limit under the LHSAA bylaws. 

In a statement made to the Advocate, LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine said:

"We had an official pitch counter on each field in Sulphur. All those gentlemen are umpires in the southwest Louisiana association. There are people out there calling us a dishonest and corrupt organization because of this and I take offense at that. We will change the procedures for next year to make sure something like this doesn't happen."
