4 tips to prevent your star player from injury this baseball season 
Baseball pitcher

The baseball season is fast approaching! Time to get your children ready for the rigors of throwing a baseball.
 
These tips will help prevent injury on the field:

1. Begin a preseason thrower's strengthening program now (see video below). In addition, conditioning, core and leg strengthening will adequately prepare the body.

2. Limit pitch counts according to guidelines. Travel players must add pitches to little league games when examining the total number of pitchers thrown.

3. Perform a warm-up and cool down program: see videos below.

4. Tell your players to report pain at first sign to get it properly assessed by a sports medicine professional.  Early recognition is crucial to prevent serious injury.
