Erie Shriners Ambulatory Surgery Center and Outpatient Specialty Care Center Participates in Baseball Research
The Erie Shriners Ambulatory Surgery Center and Outpatient Specialty Care Center has partnered with Mercyhurst University and UPMC Hamot to conduct research on local baseball pitchers, according to an Erie Times-News report.
Twelve pitchers agreed to wear sensors as they pitched for the research on the effects of throwing a baseball on the pitcher's body. The researchers seek to put evidence behind pitch count limits.
The researchers are measuring the pitcher's delivery, isokinetic muscular testing, blood testing for biomarkers and pitch speed. The researchers will spent a month analyzing the data and preparing the report.
