American Sports Medicine Institute

Major League Baseball, in partnership with the American Sports Medicine Institute (“ASMI”) located in Birmingham, Alabama, is presenting a two-day baseball medicine workshop on June 19-20, 2024, to assist underrepresented talent in sports medicine. The two days of educational coursework is to be foundational in nature for early career professionals and current students in athletic training, physical therapy, medicine, biomechanics, and performance science. Participants will be responsible for their own travel and lodging accommodations.

The baseball medicine workshop will take place at ASMI in Birmingham, Alabama, in the backdrop of the MLB at Rickwood game taking place between the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants (6/20/24), honoring the legacy of the Negro Leagues. Registrants will attend the workshop, attend the MLB at Rickwood game, and visit the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (6/21/24). The Civil Rights Institute is part of the Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument and an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, a cultural and educational research center that promotes a comprehensive understanding for the significance of civil rights developments in Birmingham.
