New Little League Injury Report

Today I received an email from Little League International containing a link to their latest injury report which has just been released. It makes for very interesting reading, especially if you’re either a baseball parent or coach. Since they invited me to forward the email to anyone else who might be interested in the information, following is the text of their correspondence and the link to the report on their website:

For more than a half-century, Little League International has maintained extensive records on injuries in Little League games and practices. These records have been used over the years to monitor trends and, when necessary, to effect positive changes in the Rules and Regulations.

In many cases, these changes have eventually been adopted in other youth baseball and softball programs, as well as professional baseball. It is just one of the many aspects of Little League that sets us apart from all other youth baseball and softball programs.

 For the first time, Little League International has produced a comprehensive report on the history of Little League’s efforts and accomplishments regarding the wellbeing of its participants and volunteers. This white paper entitled “Hits and Runs, Bumps and Bruises: Health, Safety and Injury Prevention are the Keystone of Little League” provides an extensive review of advancements in these areas.

We invite you to review this important document, produced by the Little League International Communications Division. The white paper can be found at the Little League International web site by clicking on the link to the PDF below, or by pasting it into your web browser:
