from The Seattle Times
Frank Gonzales is not an orthopedic surgeon, but he knows a shoulder injury when he sees one. After 11 years playing professional baseball and 20-plus coaching, the former pitcher has trained thousands of kids in the mechanics of throwing. Nationally, the number of serious shoulder and elbow injuries in youth baseball and softball players has increased five-fold in the past 10 years, according to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine.
