Under The Knife
Happy Father's Day
It was a short schedule of games on Thursday, the closing day of the NATA Convention, so I don't have as much material as normal today. It gives me a chance to use a little space to thank my dad. With Father's Day this weekend, I am reminded that I wouldn't be able to write this column if it weren't for the fact that my father taught me more about sports medicine than I could ever hope to remember. I still call him for help figuring out injuries, and was lucky enough to have a chance to write a book with him. Teaching is his passion, and perhaps in some small way, this column is just another outlet for his teaching. Happy Father's Day, Dad, and to all the trainers in baseball who won't be home with their kids on Sunday.
Powered by my continued quest for a Jamaican Blue Mountain replacement, on to the injuries:
It should be a great BP Radio tomorrow. We're on location, talking steroids with Dr. Linn Goldberg, a controversial figure in the field, and baseball playoffs. We'll have a report from the College World Series and talk a bit of high-school baseball theory as well. Join me and guest host Robert Portnoy tomorrow morning or catch the podcast.
