Glenn Fleisig, PhD, research director for the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI), recently joined MLB Now studio host, Brian Kenny, on MLB Network to discuss ASMI's biomechanical research study and MLB's decision to move the pitching rubber back 1' in the Atlantic League the second half of the 2021 season.

The mission of the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) is to improve the understanding, prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries through research and education. Based in Birmingham, ASMI is the research and education partner of Andrews Sports Medicine.

From little league to high school and on into college, making it to the big leagues is the dream of many young athletes. Unfortunately, many athletes have already had surgical scars inside their elbow by the time they reach the higher levels.

Thanks to the Birmingham Medical News for sharing how our orthopaedic surgeons specializing in sports injuries became concerned about the number of ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tears they were seeing and conducted an American Sports Medicine Institute research study for clues as to how these injuries might be prevented.

We're excited about our research & education partner, the American Sports Medicine Institute, being in the forefront of the next revolution of biomechanical analysis. ASMI has entered its first performance development partnership with a markerless motion capture solution created by DARI Motion—a major milestone as the trend toward camera-based biomechanics analysis continues.

“The smarter the technology could be, the less specialized the person running it has to be. Now, more people at the coaching level will be able to use it.” – Glenn Fleisig, PhD – ASMI research director
