10U rec was my least favorite season in SB. Pitchers were on thier own for the 1st time, DD being one of them. Even with inning run rules we were lucky to get 4 innings in. 10U is where I started hearing just throw strikes.
For both rec and TB if pitching is there for both Teams it is a much...
IMO it changes on all the factors OP mentioned. I am not sure anwser.
Some HS games finish like 60-55. How is that even possible and how long was the game?
Mostly DD played with an hour half time, but not drop dead. So pretty much 2 hours between each game.
One of the reasons I had them throw into a tarp or fence was to get thier head out of throwing strikes every pitch. Also give them some room to figure things out on thier own. You do not need to make a comment after each pitch.
