Why does 100 make it a special pitch-count?

If a completely arbitrary number like 100 is used, why doesn’t the pre-game warmup, and between-inning warmup, get installed in the equation? Does that mean, that some magical provision excludes – whatever stress that is believed to affect the arm – only happens during game pitches? proper training, including bio-mechanic video feedback, eradication of long-toss, pitching-specific conditioning, and pitch-volume strengthening (mental mapping), should trump pitch counts..The pitch count is as specious as the LLWS announcers are disingenuous – describing curve-ball after curve-ball as a breaking pitch….The 12 year-old arm seems to hold up to that abuse – on TV.
