Three Pitch Innings
Pitch counts. A relatively modern baseball "invention" designed specifically to protect the pitcher. Completely unofficial and no record books have ever been kept. The following pitchers had no problem with their pitch count, at least for one inning, as they started the inning, threw exactly three pitches and recorded three outs.
IMPORTANT NOTES: The list below is far from being comprehensive. As mentioned above, pitch counts are not officially recorded so each of these instances has been found because it was mentioned in an article (sources include Baseball Digest, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune & The Sporting News) accompanying the box score. Current sites do record pitch counts and fans who see an instance where this list should be expanded should contact us as soon as it happens.
