oh yeah, baseball is my sport. played in college and have done some
form of it ever since. i have been in every over 30 league around.
my kids are gaga over it as well. i am a lhp, so my right hip
failing took about 10 mph off my fastball. i have been throwing so
much better lately, cannot wait to pitch this spring. no pain at
foot plant. imagine winding up but not followin thru due to pain.
that was my delivery for the last 2 years. i actually threw 2
innings with my team back in june. it was too early after april
surgery, but the catcher remarked how much harder my ball was. best
of all, i can run bases again as well as move in the outfield.
entirely do-able with bhr. and this is not softball or old man
ball. i am playing with 25 yr olds and up and am competitive, as
well as the only lefty they have! good luck
