  • As a college baseball player and someone who has played my entire life, I can attest to the validity of these tips firsthand. I failed to follow most if not all of the guidelines mentioned, resulting in 2 separate arm injuries, both times narrowly missing surgery. Make sure you take it slow and focus on good mechanics and control!
