Can MLB Data Solve Arm Injuries in Youth Pitchers?

Saturday, March 14
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Four Seasons
San Jacinto
98 San Jacinto Blvd

For all we know and can quantify about baseball, the game’s biggest mystery is prevention of pitching injuries. Over the past few years, more MLB pitchers than ever have undergone Tommy John surgery, ranging from those whose teams were cautious with workload to those who were less so. As best we know, at the major league level the damage to pitchers’ arms from overuse may have already happened in amateur baseball. In this panel, we’ll explore how we can use Major League Baseball's data on pitchers to inform and regulate amateur pitchers’ workloads. How do we take our data and apply it to the field at lower levels? With amateur baseball fragmented across the country, how do we ensure universal education and application of MLB-caliber insights?
