The following press release was issued by the "American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons" in New York on October 28, 1997: 

NEW YORK - The use of breakaway bases in recreational baseball games could prevent 1.7 million injuries that cost the U.S. about $2 billion a year in heath care costs, David H. Janda, MD, said here today. It takes 3,500 foot-pounds of force to dislodge a stationary base, but only one-fifth that amount to move a quick-release base", Dr. Janda, director of the Institute for Preventative Sports Medicine, Ann Arbor, Mich., said at Orthopaedics Update '97, the seventh annual science writers seminar of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. The consumer Product Safety Commission concluded from its Youth Baseball Protective Equipment Project study that safety bases would be effective in reducing base contact sliding injuries. 

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has adopted a position statement which recommends that breakaway bases be installed on all playing fields.
