This week's list of recommended strength and conditioning reading (and listening) will have a heavy baseball focus.  Check out these websites:

Elite Baseball Mentorships – We've run two of these, and the feedback has been fantastic.  With that in mind, today is the early-bird registration deadline for the August 18-20 Phase 2 (no prerequisites required). We'd love to see you there!

Talking Shoulders and Elbows with Eric Cressey – This is the audio of a podcast I did for the Blue Jays Plus Podcast.  We discuss baseball injuries, player development, and a host of other topics. I come on the show at the 34-minute mark, in case you want to fast-forward to it.


The Surgery that Changed Baseball Forever – With the upcoming induction of Dr. Frank Jobe (who thought up and did the first Tommy John surgery) to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Will Carroll wrote this outstanding four-part article for Bleacher Report.  Here are the links to check out each of the articles: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.
