Ted Sullivan has a disturbing, important post today at Ahead in the Count. He's writing about a youth baseball tryout in the New York area, attended by kids who probably haven't thrown a ball in months. There are lots of boys and girls, ages 8 to 12. And one radar gun.
This gives me a reason/an excuse to link to a post from last summer on youth baseball and curve balls. And to an article I wrote about the problem for the New York Times.
