No more: Coaches can help stem tide of domestic violence
By Yvette Craig
From 2001 through the middle of 2012, the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq was 6,614. However, did you know that 11,766 American women were killed as the result of domestic violence during that same time period? Victim advocates agree that public attitudes and awareness toward domestic violence are shifting. And, when the issue is back in the headlines — once again involving an athlete — some may wonder what are the lessons learned from these tragedies and how do we prevent incidents like these from repeating themselves? The answer may lie with coaches.

Burnout a concern as club sports call for specialization
The Dallas Morning News
The little leagues have grown up. Over the last three decades, sports specialization for children and teens has exploded, becoming more focused, intense and expensive than ever before. More doesn't necessarily mean better, though. With the increased intensity comes a price — often in time and money, or in some cases, the child's interest in the sport or even their physical well being.

Cancer danger erodes baseball's chewing tobacco tradition
The State Journal-Register
As the youngest of four baseball-playing brothers, Jim Clayton was exposed to the vagaries of baseball at an early age. How to wear his pants, up to the knees or down to the shoe tops. What brand of glove was the best. The correct length and weight of his bat. The proper home run trot. And how to chew tobacco. The 28-year-old Clayton has been around baseball for almost 20 years. Tobacco was almost as much a part of that time span for Clayton as baseball spikes, wraparound sunglasses and a cap.

Athletes make chocolate milk part of their daily routine
DairyGood
Jamie Meeks doesn't have to work very hard to get the athletes at Louisiana State University to drink chocolate milk. As the university's sports nutrition coordinator and a registered dietitian, she has long known about chocolate milk's nutrition benefits and its role as a recovery drink for athletes.
