We are pleased to resume our live baseball talks here at hsbbweb radio. Join us this Sunday at 4:00 PM EST as we welcome longtime member Bulldog19 to discuss this topic among others. With all the TJ injury threads we've seen lately, this one seems to be coming at a good time.
Mike Hopper (Bulldog19) is a Certified Athletic Trainer currently working in a PT clinic and provides high school outreach services. He is a 2010 graduate of Southeast Missouri State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Health Management: Athletic Training. He is currently a graduate student through the University of South Florida pursuing a Masters Degree in Medical Sciences with a concentration in pediatric sports medicine. His special interests in sports medicine include concussions, anterior cruciate ligament injuries, injuries in the overhead athlete, and femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in the hip.
Hopper's baseball experience spans over 15 years with much of that time as a player. He also has some coaching experience and spent the summer of 2009 as an athletic training intern with the Gateway Grizzlies.
Topics for discussion: overuse injuries, pitch counts, UCL injuries, strength and conditioning considerations, among other aspects to discuss.
