Maximum number of visits


Neil Hutchison from san diego asks:

In Major League Baseball, what is the maximum number of mound visits that a manager can make to a pitcher? I had thought it was a maximum of 2 per game but I read the MLB rulebook and it sounds like a manager can go to the mound every inning once but would have to pull the pitcher on a 2nd trip to the mound in the same inning. Is that correct?

That is correct! Although there is no limit to the number of mound visits a coach can make to a pitcher throughout a game, if there is a second mound visit to the same pitcher in the same inning then the pitcher must be taken out.
