Evening, folks! After surviving another Tuesday throw-down of Daddy Daycare at the Cummings’ Family Fitness Center, complete with some backyard antics, the warm-weather has us eagerly anticipating the start of another baseball season.

Today’s video is one near and dear to my heart: are you ready to throw a baseball or softball without trashing your shoulder or elbow? Poor coaching and training led to the end of my baseball career before I was done with college. Out of the injuries I sustained on the diamond came my drive to help other avoid the same fate.

If you are a baseball or softball player, it will take you less than 5 minutes to look under the hood and see if you’re good to go. If you are the parent or friend of a baseball or softball player, please forward this link along to the player you care about. These tests can help them avoid a preventable injury.
