During a baseball game, a few player wounds occur quickly. A batter is hit by a pitch; a sprinter bangs into the shortstop while sliding into an acceptable halfway point.
The players, in any case, sustain injuries throughout many games, and they destroy their bodies by abusing them and breaking down ligaments, muscles, and tendons to the point where they cannot be sustained anymore.
So they are placed on the Injured List until they can recover. The player who occupies this position compromises his health and, ultimately, his career.

Most dangerous position:
Pitchers are in the most dangerous position in baseball. Pitchers sustain wounds as a result of overexertion of their arms, which leads to tears in ligaments and tendons in their shoulders over time. These wounds primarily affect the shoulder and elbow and are referred to as rotator sleeve injury and ulnar security elbow injury, respectively.
Pitchers, on the other hand, confront a genuine and present risk in each game when a baseball hit at slug speed is thrown directly back at them, colliding with their arms, legs, and, astonishingly, their faces. In the event of a baseball being struck at a speed exceeding 110 miles per hour, serious injury, if not death, may result.
Even though both pitchers and catchers encounter fastballs that are directly aimed at them, the pitcher does not wear the same defensive gear as the catcher. Pitching is all about structure, uppercut, and delivery, therefore a pitcher can’t wear protective gear even if he wanted to. In any event, it’s currently anticipated that pitchers will wear a cap similar to the one that players wear to protect their heads from high-velocity balls.
A baseball traveling at far more than 100 miles per hour is a dangerous shot, and keeping the pitcher on the mound is an apparent goal. Whenever he hits an infield ball, it goes to his left or right; if the ball’s path changes by just ten degrees, it will go right to him.
