Why Are There So Many Youth Baseball-Throwing Injuries?
Date:6/14/2013

season
Pitching more than one game during the same day
Pitching on back-to-back days
Pitching in a league without pitch counts or playing year-round
Throwing curve balls before high school

A total of 754 pitchers between the ages of 9 and 18 participated in this national youth baseball study where all regions of the United States were represented. The average age of the pitchers was 14.1. The average age of first throwing curve balls was 12.2. The boys pitched on average 5.2 months per year, and when in-season, threw 5.4 innings per week. More than half pitched for a travel club, and 41.9 percent attended a pitching camp. Most importantly, one-third of the pitchers reported having a pitching-related injury in the past 12 months, seven out of 10 reported significant arm tiredness in the past 12 months, and nearly 40 percent reported significant arm pain within the past 12 months.

To date, this is the largest study of its kind. It is also the first study to include all regions of the United States. The American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine sponsored the study.

Dr. Guettler says that the first step to bringing down the number of pitching injuries can be remembered with a simple, newly coined “Rule of Ones.”

It means one game a day, one day of pitching then rest, one position at a time during a pitched game, one team at a time, only one pitch before high school, and at least one season of some other organized sport. And parents, if your young pitcher mentions that his arm is ‘sore’ or ‘tired’ – let him take some time off. One complaint of arm soreness or tiredness equals one week off.
