Less time between pitches may increase muscle fatigue

Less time between pitches may increase muscle fatigue
June 28, 2016

A simulation of baseball pitches showed decreasing the time between pitches may significantly increase muscle fatigue and the risk of ligament injury, according to results.

Researchers used a computer model to predict muscle fatigue in simulated baseball games for 73 American League starting pitchers from the 2014 season. Researchers examined muscle fatigue with rest determined by a self-selected pitching pace, 12 seconds of rest (as represented by Rule 8.04 from the Major Baseball League) and with 20 seconds of rest as examined on the pitch clock in the 2014 Arizona Fall League.
