BACKGROUND Baseball professionals believe that pitching from a mound can increase the stresses placed on the body. HYPOTHESIS There is no difference in kinematics or kinetics in pitching from a mound versus flat-ground conditions in adolescent baseball pitchers. STUDY DESIGN Laboratory investigation. METHODS The fastball pitching motions of 15 adolescent baseball pitchers, including upper extremity kinematics and kinetics and lead- and trail-leg kinematics, were evaluated while pitching… CONTINUE READING
