Majority of Baseball Parents Unaware Their Youth Athlete Is Specializing Which Can Lead to a Higher Rate of Injury

National Athletic Trainers' Association

Baseball is an incredibly popular sport in the United States with 13 million-17 million athletes under the age of 18 participating at the club and high school levels. Despite evidence suggesting that sport specialization may be related to the development of overuse injuries and surgeries in youth athletes, youth specialization rates continue to rise in the United States. In this study, 31% of youth athletes self-classified as specialized in baseball, whereas the remaining 69% identified as non-specialized. When re-classified to scientific standards, the reality was that more than 83% of the cohort qualified as specialized and 17% qualified as not specialized.
