My daughter plays on a 12U travel team and obtained a buckle fracture to her thumb during a game. She has now been in a cast for a little over a week. I'm an assistant coach on the team so I'm still very active with the team. Due to her injury my daughter is now limited to her participation (she plays ss and pitches but can now only designated runner) and although the injury is not on the throwing arm she is unable to fit a glove on comfortably to catch. She is becoming very unsure of her abilities and as a mother I still am pushing her to still be involved. What can I do to keep her spirits up and keep her injured arm strong so she will not be discouraged when her arm heals?
