Researcher identifies growing obesity rate among pro baseball players


We wanted to take a look at how body
size and body mass have changed in professional baseball players over the
last hundred forty-five years. We found some data on baseball players’ height and
weight. And we were able to look at those trends and what we found is that for
over a hundred twenty years baseball players had a very stable pattern of
body mass. In 1991 there was a spike that started in overweight and obesity. What
effect does this have on kids and adolescents for watching professional
baseball? Do they learn the things that overweight and obesity is a model for
how their body should be?
