New app to help pitchers avoid Tommy John surgery
STACK
With Tommy John surgery — a procedure that replaces an injured ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow — being performed with increasing frequency on young baseball pitchers, Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Kevin Wilk are using technology to do something about it. Andrews, a noted orthopedic surgeon, and Wilk, a physical therapist, have created "Throw Like a Pro," an iOS app aimed at teaching players, parents and coaches how to prevent injuries caused by repeatedly throwing a baseball.

COACHING NEWS


Early signing period remains a hot topic
National Football Post
There has long been discussion between coaches and administrators about an early signing period, as verbal commitments occur at a much earlier rate — as do subsequent decommitments.

Texas' UIL rejects 'mercy rule' proposal for 11-man football
KXAN-TV
The governing board for high school athletics in Texas rejected a proposal that would have adopted a mercy rule for 11-man football.

World Cup referees get high-tech help watching the goal line
Bloomberg Businessweek
It's not clear that smartwatches will ever make the leap from the tech hype cycle to the real world, but the devices will get at least one highly visible cameo on a particularly big stage.

The Atlantic
There are several reasons for the rise of soccer's little big stars, but the main one is that being close to the ground is a major advantage for midfielders and forwards. Shorter people have a "quicker stepping pattern," Stasinos Stavrianeas, a professor of exercise science at Willamette University, said. Essentially, they're spry: They can change directions much faster than tall folks and they have better control over their limbs.

New study: Kids and caffeine may be a dangerous combination
Today
New research hints at worrisome effects of coffee and soda for kids. Even low doses of caffeine — equivalent to what you'd find in a half to a full can of soda or a cup of coffee — had an effect on kids' blood pressure and heart rates. And researchers found that the stimulant had more potent heart and blood pressure effects in boys than girls after puberty.
