As a charity focused on addressing prostate cancer, we are excited to share an invite to a very special night that we’re planning for later this month. We will convene a panel of experts to hold a detailed and enlightened conversation about pitch counts, best practices for pitching and throwing, the importance of extended recovery periods for young athletes, and the truths and myths of Tommy John surgery.
This exciting event will feature Tommy John himself and will be moderated by our Founder and CEO, Ed Randall. Our Town Hall on the Tommy John Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, June 28, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the SVA Theatre in New York City.
Listen to and Learn from the Experts
To shape this discussion about the Tommy John surgery, pitching mechanics and pitch counts, we have assembled a panel of four leading experts in the field:
- Tommy John, who won 164 games after undergoing the UCL surgery named after him in 1974.
- Leo Mazzone, longtime Braves’ pitching coach, named by ESPN as the #1 assistant coach in team sports history
- Glenn Fleisig, Ph.D, ASMI Research Director and USA Baseball
- Dr. Chris Ahmad – Attending Surgeon, NY-Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center and Head Physician, New York Yankees
Tickets for this exclusive, one-time-only event are going fast!
