What’s happening? Why are so many pitchers from Little League to MLB blowing out their elbow and needing the ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction better known as Tommy John surgery? This is the hottest question in sports today. Dr. Glenn Fleisig and his team at the American Sports Medicine Institute are the recognized leading authorities on this topic, having scientifically studied the issue for more than two decades. In this presentation, Fleisig explains the biomechanics, epidemiology and other risk factors associated with Tommy John injuries. This analytic approach explains why these injuries happen and steps underway with ASMI, Major League Baseball, Little League, and USA Baseball to defeat this epidemic.
