Pitch Smart by MLB Worth a Long Look

I was just alerted to this by an old teammate Jake Seiner who writes for MiLB and I think its worth a look and a bookmark to be used as reference.

MLB’s PITCH SMART, is (as you can see above) “a series of practical, age-appropriate guidelines to help parents, players and coaches avoid overuse injuries and foster long, healthy careers for youth pitchers.”

What I found most interesting so far is the pitch count guidelines chart (below).

There are also some great videos from guys like Dr. James Andrews and Brian Cashman.

As a pitcher who’s UCL is feeling more like Polly-O’s string cheese than a functional tendon these days, I think its worth a look.

Check out PITCH SMART here.
