Little League International, 3P Sports to Host Free Webinar on Prevention of Pitching Injuries, Performance Improvement

Little League International continues to enhance its education and training programs by expanding its repository of informational services available to coaches, players and parents. Aiding with the instruction of Little League pitchers is a relationship with 3P Sports.

Rick Petersen, Pitching Coach for Major League Baseball’s Milwaukee Brewers, and Jim Duquette, former General Manager of the New York Mets and Baltimore Orioles, are co-founders and partners of 3P (Prepare, Prevent, Perform) Sports.

On Wednesday, April 14, from 8:30-to-9:30 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time, Mr. Petersen and Mr. Duquette will be joined by Nick Caringi, Senior Director of Operations and Education for Little League International, as Little League and 3PSports conduct a free webinar highlighting methods for preventing pitching-related injuries and improving pitching performance.

Information on how to access the webinar is available here.

“This webinar is part of Little League’s continuing efforts to stem arm injuries and offer education on the best practices for the reduction of these types of injuries,” Nick Caringi said. “Mr. Petersen and Mr. Duquette will provide listeners with their perspectives and answer questions regarding pitching, arm injury prevention and introduce the 3P Sports Program.”

Since the development and implementation of the Little League Pitch Count in 2007, Little League International has made great strides in addressing and educating its leagues and volunteers regarding “overuse” injuries sustained by pitchers and catchers.

In addition to this year’s revised pitch count rules, other related rules and regulations have been put into place and several training tools have been created and available through Little League’s free on-line Coaches Resource Center.

“With the support of contributors like 3P Sports, and Little League’s other education and training partners, our program has refined the resources available, and as a result have provided coaches with the tools to help children play the game safer,” Mr. Caringi, a former Division I college pitcher and baseball coach, said. “We have established a baseline of training materials, while also making available a higher level of instruction and extended educational experience through programs like 3P Sports.”

The 3P Sports Internet-based training program for youth pitchers employs video analysis, drills and conditioning.
