This article appeared in "The Frederick News-Post" just recently and thought it should be passed along to all Baseball players no matter what league you have selected to continue your baseball experience.

Playing multiple sports is part of solution

    I wanted to compliment your Coach's Corner column "A multi-sport approach is still the way to go."  Youth participation in organized sports in the U.S. is rising, with many kids focusing on a single sport.

   That's despite the fact that research shows that young athletes spending over eight months annually in one sport not only increase their risk of injury by 70 per-cent, but they're more likely to participate in less games, incur more major injuries, and have a shorter career.

   As the son of retired MLB pitcher Tommy John, whose  name is attached to a procedure that now affects more kids than pro athletes (Tommy John surgery), I wish more parents understood how having their kids play several sports is part of the solution.

  I ask that your readers consider this:  Among the 106 players on the Patriots and Eagles rosters, 102 played multiple sports in high school.  And according to research only 22.3 percent of pro athletes say they would want their child to specialize in just one sport.  If you want your kid to turn pro then consider that the pros already know that sports specialization isn't the answer.
