Abstract

The importance of role of the scapula in throwing motion is reported in many clinical situations. Therefore, stability of the scapula in relationship to the entire moving arm is key point in the throwing motion. However, the scapular motion is often ignored in conventional biomechanical research. The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in scapular motion during a simulated baseball game.
