Preventing baseball arm injuries becomes pretty simple when you find out the causes and reasons that lead to injuries in baseball.
Avoiding the situations that put pitchers at risk of pitching injury is the key. Knowing baseball fundamentals and youth baseball rules helps too.
Having plenty of pitchers on your team is another safety feature. I recommend at least 4 pitchers per age year on every team. The more the better--give everyone a chance to pitch.
Don’t forget that these same two pitchers are probably playing shortstop and catcher too. This further puts these players at risk of baseball injuries.
If a player is complaining of an arm baseball injury from pain in the elbow or shoulder of the throwing arm then a period of rest is highly recommended. The player should be immediately taken out the game.
If the arm injuries pain persists over more than several days or reoccurs while pitching again, then medical attention should be sought.
Baseball Arm injuries in baseball can be avoided when the adults have knowledge of how to prevent baseball injuries.
USA Baseball Medical & Safety Advisory Committee Pitch Count Recommendations.
Recommended youth league pitch counts for 9-10 yr olds and little league players.
Recommended youth league pitch count for 11-12 yr olds and little league pitch counts.
Recommended youth league pitch counts for 13-14 yr olds.
Most high school baseball leagues have weekly inning limits for pitchers usually around 10 innings per week to help coaches avoid baseball arm inuries by over-throwing pitchers.
Coaches have to monitor individual pitch counts. One hundred pitches per game are about enough for one days work although that is not in the youth baseball rules.
Pitch counts are kept for live game pitches. These recommendations do not count warm-ups, practice bullpen sessions, and other throws when playing and practicing other positions.
