More advice for young arms

A little while back I posted a report by a baseball coach and friend of mine, Dr. John Mishock, who warned baseball people about the overuse of young pitchers and why that is harmful from a medical point of view.  To see that original report called Longterm Team Athletic Development: Are we coaching our kids correctly?, click HERE.

He recently sent out some guidelines from the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) directed at parents and coaches of young baseball players.  To see the letter that includes tips and pitch count recommendations, click on this link:  Guidelines to prevent shoulder and elbow injuries

Have a great weekend, best of luck in your games and practices, and take good care of those arms!
