According to the American Sports Medicine Institute, “The 2014 National Electronic Injury Surveillance System reported 130,376 emergency room visits due to baseball/softball related shoulder, elbow, trunk, lower arm, head, neck, ankle and facial injuries.” First and foremost, the main goal of training should be to keep athletes healthy, best acquired with a comprehensive approach.
