“With all the hype out there and concern about arm health, the increase in Tommy John surgeries, the debate over when to throw curveballs, pitch counts etc., it is important for parents and coaches to have somewhat of an understanding as to what to look for when evaluating the health of their player or child. I will present information on proper pitching mechanics, the importance of video, how to minimize risk of arm injury through the season, as well as, discuss curveballs and pitch counts.” said Todd Alford owner and operator of Elite Performance.
