They play travel ball year round, by the time they finish high school they’ve already got half a career mileage on that arm. The youth leagues have inning counts for most of these kids but they’re playing 5 games a weekend almost year round PLUS nephew has been playing travel ball now for 6 years, he’s 14 now and luckily he’s got an organization and coach that know they’re kids and don’t over work them but I’ve seen TONS of teams and kids he’s played against that aren’t so lucky..
I think year around sports is killing every sport; Nobody gets a break because nobody will take a break for fear of losing their spot. My kids could give a crap about sports but I have some friends and neighbors who are traveling constantly with their kids to play whatever sport they are in.
