Key Items Going into the 2024 Season

Check out the NFHS Rules Changes here: 2024 NFHS Baseball Rules Changes

One rule to highlight is the 1-6-2 (NEW) Section 6 Player Communication Equipment. This new rule allows for one-way communication to the catcher from the dugout. This can be as simple as a one-way radio or some more sophisticated like a Pitch Comm system. A smart watch could also be used. The key is one-way. No electronic communication going back to the dugout from the catcher is allowed. Kansas will adopt this new rule.

Preseason arm care has been approved. Practice shall not be held prior to Monday of Standardized Calendar Week #35. Starting Monday of Standardized Calendar Week #31, school coaches may work with their students two times per week, over a four-week period, for no more than 1.5 hours per session for pitching drills only.
