I'm 27 years old and i have play baseball since i was 4. And i just suffered my 5th grade 3 concussion playing baseball in the last 15 years and my 2nd in 2months. i've have also had several grade 1 concussion in between all of them. i give 150% everytime i step on the diamond and i cant change the way i play the game because it wouldn't be me. so i know i'll suffer another one. so i guess my question is is there a limit to the amount of concussion you can get before something serious happens? Should i stop playing? Someone help me please.

Yikes on the concussions. More data comes in every day about the problems and risks related to concussions in sports and the permanent damage that can do.

Here are some links...the first is about Football but of course the information isn't only about football concussions. All of them discuss the long-term risks and the measures you can take to help prevent.
