High schools against pitch counts?

It is hard for me to believe that, in this day and age – with all we know about arm injuries (and admittedly there is still a lot we don’t know), there are youth sports organizations balking at the idea of pitch count restrictions. Particularly given the lack of hard core research, why wouldn’t we prefer to err on the safe side?

I’d appreciate your thoughts on the subject.
