Baseball is a fantastic way to get fit and can provide a fun workout for people of all ages. It is a fast-paced game which draws on a number of skills from hand-eye coordination to speed and strength. Although it's often seen as an American sport, baseball has become increasingly popular in the UK and now there are many established teams located across the country. Insure4Sport provides specialist baseball insurance policies to ensure players, teams and coaches stay safe and stay covered.
Common Baseball Injuries
The most common baseball injuries tend to be soft tissue injuries. These can include ligament damage (sprains), muscle pulls (strains), cuts and bruising.
Although baseball is a non-contact sport, the more serious injuries usually come from contact, either with the ball, bat or another player. Unless you’re batting, you won’t be wearing a helmet; and a ball traveling over 100mph and hitting you in the face can cause bruising, concussion, a skull fracture and damage to your teeth. It’s also not uncommon for outfielders to bump into each other, causing injury.
Baseball injuries also tend to come from the repetitive nature of the sport, which can lead to overuse injuries to the shoulder and elbows. Overuse injuries usually occur over a large period of time due to the continued stress on the soft tissue, muscles and joints without the required time for healing. They start small, as an aching pain, but without the required rest they can become an unbearable pain. Pitchers are particularly prone to ligament damage or tears in the elbow and shoulder.
The best way to prevent any of these injuries is to warm up extensively before any training session or match, and if you are to have a niggling injury, make sure you give your body the correct amount of rest to allow proper recovery before returning to the game.
