Youth Baseball Pitchers Throwing More Than 100 Innings Per Year Risk Serious Injury

Youth baseball pitchers throwing more than 100 innings in a calendar year are 3.5 times more likely to be so seriously injured as to require elbow or shoulder surgery or retirement due to injury, says a new study from the American Sports Medicine Institute. The study suggests that playing catcher may double or triple a pitcher's risk of injury, but the small number of injured players studied prevented a finding that the risk was significantly significant.
