Abstract

The purpose of this study was to address the health consciousness of high school baseball players. A group of high school baseball players were asked to fill out a survey for 4 to 7 days that recorded their diet, daily exercise, amount of sleep, and amount of screen time. The nutrition data recorded by the players was put into SuperTracker, an online food intake tracker. All of the data was recorded and compared to the recommendations found in the literature review. It was found that most of the players did not meet the nutritional recommendations, but did, however, meet the recommendations for sleep and screen time usage and exceeded the recommended amount of daily exercise.
