Reply to "Labrum surgery"

Two friends of my son's had labrum tears and subsequent surgery.  Both are doing well and both are playing for major D1 programs.  One is a catcher and one is a pitcher.  It's funny as I look at a photo of them together on their 11 U team.  The two I referenced had shoulder surgery and my son along with another teammate both had Tommy John.  The other kid with Tommy John was drafted and signed.  I can tell you I hear more success stories than I do failures.  It all has to do with the rehab assuming the surgeon is good.  

Here's a little friendly advice... Find the equilibrium of being careful but not babying it.  A MLB rehab coach worked with my son and thought he was babying it too much.  He was following the protocol to a T but his throwing motion became somewhat altered because it was harder to continue to lob the ball.  All is well now.
