I agree a major reason is overuse at a young age. It used to be we played baseball in the spring, football in the fall and basketball in the winter. Now a kid will play baseball in the spring, then a summer league followed by a fall league until late October. Then they have workouts from November until school tryouts again in February.

Also, they used to say not to throw anything but a fastball until 15 or 16 years old. I know Mike Mussina said he never through a fastball until then. Now when a 13- or 14-year-old tries out for pitching they want to see his curve.

I remember Ken Beatrice talking about how people could train more and get bigger, but you couldn’t improve the joints the same way you can build muscle. The more things get pushed in one place, the more that another place may be more subject to breakdown.

Sure they throw faster. But fewer innings. I am sure that is some factor but the doctors seem to say it is from too much pitching at a young age.  A kid at 18 now has probably thrown ten times as much as a similar kid back in the 1960s. 

I will keep listening to Dr Andrews rather than dudes who maybe stayed at a Holiday Inn.

interesting logic to say that we shouldn't listen to doctors because they profit from illness.

LOL.  Yea. They don’t need these surgeries. He’s just drumming up business.

He perpetuates a cycle that keeps him in business. Be a lot fewer surgeries if pitchers just threw 88-90.

and it's Andrews fault that college and MLB scouts look for hard throwers????

One of the things i've seen in our area is that the top high school prospects will often repeat 11th grade to get another year of development under their belt. They'll transfer after completing 11th at a public school to a private school with a solid baseball program.  It's all business at a very young age.

What area is that?  I've never heard of it at all.

Kids never used to get TJS and now they are. It’s overuse.

In kids, yes. There have been no studies of adult pitchers. Which is the question.

Also, that study doesnt control for velocity

Quote
These pitchers were more frequently starting pitchers, pitched in more showcases, pitched with higher velocity, and pitched more often with arm pain and fatigue.

So was it pitching more or pitching harder? Or both?

Go read the first sentence of the results. Keep sticking to your point Ko matter what experts or studies are provided. I am sure you have your own data and know best.

Dont have the data, but the study admits it didnt control for velocity. If you have studies that control for velo in adults, post em up.

If its just overuse alone, catchers would have similar rates of injury, as they have similar (if not greater) throwing rates

So you want to control for velocity in adults. How would one go about doing that?  Did kids used to have TJS?  No. Did they used to pitch year round?  You’re just being dense here. I am sure velocity plays some role but the bottom line is kids pitch lots more at a younger age. It’s wear and tear. Common sense.

For others here is the Conclusion of that study.

“Conclusion: Pitching practices were significantly different between the groups. The factors with the strongest associations with injury were overuse and fatigue. High pitch velocity and participation in showcases were also associated with increased risk for injury.“

It does say high pitch velocity is correlated. Just not as much as the main factors.

Not sure what you mean by that. The toss back to the pitcher is obviously not hard on the arm. Other than that they only have a hand full of hard throws all game.

Nowhere in that article did it mention NoVA.

I know of several kids in NoVa who have gone that route and have ended up playing at Highland School in Warrenton. That's what I was referring to.
