The reason for injury at ages 6-18 is tourny’s and overuse and because most of the time kids mechanics don’t allow them to throw that much. I’m seeing it for my self when Kids on my team are burned out and have a tired are because of all the throwing. Including me with a tired arm that I’m going to take a week off till the next game.
IT IS THE STUPIDEST IDEA IN THE WHOLE WORLD TO THINK LITTLE KIDS CAN THROW 3 GAMES IN A ROW WHILE PITCHING ONE OF THEM AND ALSO COME BACK THE NEXT DAY.
Me I only played 3 games in three day’s but theres alot of throwing because you pitch and play position too.
I think we should all end weekend tourny’s and make them longger into the week.
I pulled myself out of 2 games this week because Of a arm that became inflammted and I couldn’t throw. Now MOST KIDS wouldn’t have taken there selfs out of the game because they need to prove they are good and don’t want to tell anyone they are tired. THis is a problem that needs to get fixed if we want are youths to be HEALTHY WHEN THEY PITCH.
WHAT"S YOUR THOUGHTS ON TOURNY’S???
