When you think of dangerous sports, perhaps football, hockey or snowmobiling comes to mind. But maybe you should be thinking baseball, according to a study presented Sunday at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's annual meeting in Providence, R.I. Compiled by a team from the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, the study analyzed data from the disabled lists of major league teams for the 2002 through 2008 seasons. Overall, pitchers seem to be experiencing the bulk of the injuries. They were 34% more likely to be injured compared with fielders, and they accounted for 62.4% of the days that players spent on the disabled list, even though a typical team of 25 players has only 11 pitchers on its roster. Not surprisingly, the study saw a significant association between position played and anatomic region injured. Pitchers experienced 67% of their injuries in their shoulders and arms, compared with only 32% for fielders. Instead, fielders experienced 47.5% of their injuries to their hips and legs and 20% to the back, core muscles and other areas.
