Pitch Count App Requirements for 2024
All OBA Rep and Select coaches will have to input pitch counts for their players who are playing in the WOBA House league.  It will be the responsibility of the WOBA league coach to inform the respective OBA Rep and Select coaches if an OBA player pitched during their game to ensure that these pitch counts numbers are added to OBA's arm care app.

All Rep and Select teams must record pitch counts on a pitch count app developed by the OBA. The Baseball Ontario Pitch Count App is provided free for all Baseball Ontario rostered teams.

The Baseball Ontario Pitch Count app is available to anyone in Ontario to access as a guest user.  Guest users can view rosters and pitch count information for any team in the province.

Only Coaches are permitted access to the full functionality of the app, such as entering games, adding players, and adding pitch counts. Coaches may delegate access to a volunteer to enter pitch counts only.

In order for coaches to access the app, you must be on an approved Baseball Ontario roster with a valid and unique email address. Two coaches cannot share the same email address in the system. Please email [email protected] for support. Please note this email address is not monitored 24/7, your email will be responded to as soon as possible.

The Pitch Count app account set up is triggered by the upload of your roster into the Pitch Count system. Once you submit your roster, it must be approved by your Affiliate Registrar. As soon as it is approved and received by the OBA office with a valid email address attached to the coach, it will be uploaded into the system and you will receive an email to sign up.

The Pitch Count app is available through the Google Play Store and the App Store.
