OHSAA to allow communication devices in baseball

The NFHS will permit a coach from within a dugout to use a one-way communication device to call pitches starting in 2024.

The OHSAA is adopting the rule to allow a team’s catcher to be the only player a coach may communicate with during a game.

Other rule changes include removing spectator behavior as a reason for an umpire to declare a contest a forfeit, leaving game administration to handle poor behavior. Wristbands with defensive shifts, pitching choices or game directions also were declared non-electronic equipment and must be a single, solid color worn on a non-pitching forearm.

MLB successfully adopted PitchCom in 2022 to allow catchers, typically, to quickly relay signals to a pitcher and select fielders through remote button presses.
