Pitch Smart... For Little Leaguers

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.
