Intriguing look at a baseball's greatest real life mystery that still goes unsolved today. Invaluable read to anyone with a child that pitches competitively. Great insights and helps blow up many myths and misconceptions.
Most Important Book Since Moneyball
By Steve from Buffalo
Jeff Passan first told me about this book over three years ago. My first thought? Why would anyone want to read about the arm?
Then it happened, and happened again, and again. The ucl's of MLB pitchers everywhere were blowing out. The Braves lost Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachey (twice). It was frustrating. I had so many questions. Why? Why so much? What can teams do to protect pitchers?
Jeff Passan delivers a book that is thought out, researched, and human. He tries to answer all of the questions. Some just don't have answers. Following the elbows of Dan Hudson and Todd Coffey give this book the human element it needs. Information from doctors, scouts, coaches, players and parents give us a perspective from all sides of the epidemic.
Passan didn't just deliver a good book. He delivered the most important book about baseball since Moneyball. It's a five star must read for any baseball fan or parent of a you get pitcher.
