Keep your hitter in the batter box and off the bench.

Wednesday, Feb. 13th 2013

Injuries are a part of every sport, especially baseball. But, as a parent of a young baseball player, it is difficult to know when to push your child and when to say enough is enough, you’re too hurt to play. In order to tell the difference between an injury that is merely superficial, and one that could be detrimental to the long-term health of our son or daughter, we must become educated. Safety should be the most important part of any athletic activity, and I personally will make a conscious effort to make our readers aware of the ways in which they can make the game safer for their children in future posts.

To start my public awareness push for increased safety in baseball, I would like to point to BaseballThinkTank.com’s Injury Prevention 101 guide. The guide provides information about common and not so common baseball injuries: tendonitis, elbow pain, shoulder stiffness, and ankle injuries. While the articles are informative through the overall quality of information presented, the value of the written text is extenuated through the use of video tutorials about how to care for your young child, if and when the injury bug strikes them. The website also give preventative measures for how to take care of your child’s body, and looks to keep players in the batters box and off the bench. These exercises may be tedious and less fun than other baseball activities, but they are important and can increase the longevity and productivity of your young baseball player’s career. Today’s game has been revolutionized through the use of advanced stats, but all indications have pointed to baseball’s new frontier being improved by the use of science and injury prevention techniques. For the sake of your child, take advantage of the new ways in which you can keep them healthy, and look toward revolutionary remedies to fix age-old problems.
