    Book Review: Any Given Monday: Sports Injuries and How to Prevent Them, for Athletes, Parents, and Coaches — Based on My Life in Sports Medicine.

    By Dr. James R. Andrews, with Don Yeager. We all have a favorite MLB pitcher who has undergone Tommy John Surgery (and some of us, more than one) and then had to wait the obligatory 12-18 months rehab time, hoping that they would return to their previous form and dominance. Most of us who follow […]

    Book Review:
    Stillpower: Excellence with Ease in
    Sports and Life, By Garrett Kramer

    We have all heard sports players who are not being successful on the field described as “struggling”, or “pressing”, or “trying to do too much”. And may of us were taught (myself included) as long as you worked as hard as you can, and keep on going for it, that things will usually work out […]

    Book Review: Major League Dads:
    Baseball’s Best Players Reflect on the Fathers
    Who Inspired Them to Love the Game

    by Kevin Neary and Leigh A. Tobin When I was a young girl, I played Little League softball for 4 years, playing a variety of positions, and even making the All-Star team one year. And while my dad wasn’t my formal coach, (he and my mom did sponsor my team one year, though), many hours […]

    Book Review: Extra Innings
    by Bruce E. Spitzer

    There has been a ongoing debate about what would Ted Williams’ stats have been like if he hadn’t went to war during the prime of his career–would he have bettered his still untouched .406 batting average? Would he have gotten the Red Sox a World Series win before 2004? There is also an ongoing debate […]
