Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
In 1998, more than 91,000 children ages 5 to 14 were treated in hospital emergency rooms for baseball-related injuries, and nearly 26,000 children ages 5 to 14 were treated for softball-related injuries. Three to four children die from baseball injuries each year.
Baseball- and softball-related injuries involve the head more than any other part of the body. Protective equipment, safe playing environments and playing by the rules help to prevent injuries from occurring while teaching your child safe ways to have fun.
Review the following safety recommendations with your children, and teach them how to have fun and be safe on the baseball and softball fields.
