What is a concussion?

A concussion is a brain injury that can be caused by a blow or jolt to the head and can change the way the brain normally works. Any concussion is serious whether mild or severe. They can also be caused by a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth and causes the brain to strike the surrounding skull. Concussions most often do NOT result in loss of consciousness - only 10% involve loss of consciousness.

Babe Ruth League, Inc. strongly encourages all leagues and teams to comply with any applicable laws and to review the information and training materials on concussions which are available on the Centers For Disease Control website at: http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html

Coaches will be provided concussion awareness information sheets prior to the season and will be asked to report all injuries to league officials at arlbaberuth@gmail.com.
