Posted On: Wednesday, April 06, 2016

On Tuesday, April 5, 2016, a shivering opening day at Yankee Stadium, it was a warm and fun evening for the Greenwich Junior Babe Ruth League at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center, where approximately 65 athletes, parents, and coaches attended Play Ball! Play Safe! Specialization with Success in Baseball – A Conditioning Clinic sponsored by ONSF.

Dr. Paul Sethi, Orthopedic Surgeon, Sports Medicine Specialist, and President of ONSF, addressed pitching and presented a review of the latest research on what works best to treat common arm injuries. Gary Scott, former Chicago Cubs 3rd Baseman, shared his thoughts about being a pro and his hitting expertise. His demonstrations of proper throwing and batting had parents, athletes, and coaches in awe!

Work stations manned by Alicia Hirscht DPT, Tatyana Kalyuzhny, PT, Nick Mucovic, PT and Chris Kish PTA, provided demonstrations on safe conditioning and strengthening.

When asked about the evening’s activities, parent Mike Norris said “Gary Scott’s presentation was kept simple and resonated to 13 year old boys.” Athlete Jake said “Now I know the risks of overuse and how it can hurt your arm. I always thought that could never happen to me.”
