Monroe Baseball & Softball is putting together FREE informal monthly Baseball Managers Roundtable meetings at a local establishment. starting in November. The goal would be to not only encourage and orient new parents who wish to get involved, but also to improve and coordinate efforts League-wide. We would most likely meet for an hour or two locally on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening.
Come December 2014, we should have a new baseball Coaching Coordinator appointed who will will be actively involved in this as well.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO MONROE BASEBALL & SOFTBALL AND ARE INTERESTED IN MANAGING A TEAM THIS SPRING, BUT DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE AND/OR WOULDN'T KNOW WHERE TO START, THE FIRST COUPLE OF MEETINGS WOULD BE FOR YOU!
Major League Baseball recently unveiled the first step in an initiative aimed at reducing pitcher injuries.
It’s called “Pitch Smart” and it’s designed to educate youth players, parents and coaches about how to better avoid arm injuries. This is important because, as Dr. James Andrews noted last spring when a rash of Tommy John surgeries hit Major League Baseball, that risky behavior begins when the pitcher is young and is the single most contributing factor.
In other words, the road towards Tommy John Surgery begins when players in in Little League or Cal Ripken, not when they are already in the big leagues.
