My son’s first baseball game is next weekend and he is playing on the 8 and under squad this year. The little kid days of T-ball are drifting away and most of the kids will be pitching and catching on their own for the first time. So earlier this week when I read this Chicago Tribune article about youth baseball and the risk for commotio cordis, I paid attention. Or maybe a better way to describe my reaction was the more you know, the more you freak out. I am relatively new to the world of youth sports so I was totally unaware of this as it seems most of the press has been devoted to head concussions. Maybe it’s time to add commotio cordis to the youth sports conversation.
