Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

FIRSTLY, THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT : it is simply a partial fracture with both fragments united. It should heal completely within a maximum of 3 weeks.

Once fully healed, as confirmed by check x-ray, physical therapy of 10-15 days will suffice. In the meanwhile, there is NO restriction on physical exercises of the rest of the body, to keep the muscles fully toned.

In a nutshell, you will be fit for baseball within a maximum of 4 weeks.
