Long time no talkie.
I'm here for ya. We've been through TJ roller coaster as a family as I watched my son go under the TJ knife, start a game 11 months later, and all the ups-n-downs in between. It is not the kiss of death as many feel, in our case quiet the contrary.
If you asked my son what was the best thing that happened to him in his baseball life he would tell you that his TJ injury made him not only understand the passion he has for the game, but also the understanding that it could be all over with one pitch. His grades skyrocketed, and his outlook at life without baseball became part of his mindset. As much as us on this site live for our kids baseball, it should never encase us from the real world. He taught me a life lesson I will never forget.
