The Epidemic

The EpidemicThe past few years have seen what is coming to be regarded as an epidemic of injuries to pitchers.

Elbows, in particular, seem to be failing at un-precedented rates.

I have been studying this problem for approaching 10 years, reading literally every journal article and textbook I can get my hands on, talking to doctors, and shooting and studying thousands of clips of pitchers. As a result of that research, I have come to a number of conclusions about what is happening and why.

This piece started out as a single essay about the pitcher injury and Tommy John surgery epidemic. Over the past few years, I have expanded it into a webbook entitled The Epidemic: The Pitcher Injury and Tommy John Surgery Epidemic Explained.
