I am 17 years of age and I love playing baseball and hanging out with my family and friends.
My project facilitator is Damian Apone.
Tommy John Surgery
The topic I researched on my paper was if players returned to baseball throwing harder and more effective.
The ulnar collateral ligament is torn on your elbow which causes the process of surgery and rehab.
During surgery, a tendon from your forearm or your leg Is threaded through holes that the surgeons drill and that tendon acts as a ligament.
If you have the surgery done on your arm, it is not definite that you will come back throwing harder and better.
Some players came back without their best stuff, and even some pitchers had to end their career.
Career Link to Product
I looked into the career of coaching baseball as something I wanted to do Because I thought I would be able to connect with kids and get them ready for the next level.
The statistics I kept throughout the season are one of the biggest things a coach can keep track of so he knows what to focus on during practice and help the players grow.
The first half of the season where I watched my pitchers and took notes on how I needed to work with them.
This was the second half of the season where I helped the pitchers.
During practice I would typically work with my pitchers whether it be flat grounds, or bull pens.
I would really focus on having them hit their correct spots because you need to have good location in order to be an effective pitcher.
This was after our practice where we scrimmaged ourselves.
Kind of hard to see but this was taken after we beat North Cobb.
What I Learned about me?
I had to figure out certain choices to make in key situations quickly.
The season started a month after school was in session so I had to learn how to juggle coaching a team and doing my school work.
I made sure I had a plan for the day whether it was practice or a game.
I worked at my best when I made good personal bonds with all the players on the team.
What will I do Next?
I am going to cleveland state community college to play baseball in Tennessee.
I will be playing baseball and I have not made my choice of what major I would like to go into in the fall.
Working in baseball seems like the right job for me although coaching I found is something that changed my mind.
