Message to Players
This program has been developed for your benefit. It is very common, especially in baseball pitchers, for talented players to injure their throwing shoulder or elbow and then not be able to play anymore. This is because the best players are asked to play the most, and so they throw the most and the hardest, and so they are at the highest risk for over-throwing injuries. Strangely, it is this group of "the best" players who have future prospects for playing at higher levels that are at the most risk for injuries that can end those prospects. Sometimes these injuries lead to surgery, and they often end the season or even the whole future for the player. At SafeThrow, it is our mission to identify players at risk for these injuries, and start simple stretching exercises and throwing mechanic corrections which can keep these devastating injuries from ever happening.
