Inspired by first-hand experiences as an orthopedic surgeon, parent, and little league coach, Dr. Wesley K. Cox began writing this book as a tool for his clinic and as an aid for his pa- tients and young athletes. As the need became more and more obvious, the chapters grew. In Play Ball...Play Safe, parents, coaches, and young players are guided through the most common injuries and issues in youth baseball today. Rehabilitation programs are provided, and performance training, hitting and throwing progression programs, and pre- and post- game routines are all given. Using this book as a reference, youth baseball players will be safer and better. Injuries will be recognized sooner, recovery will be quicker, and proper training to improve mechanics and muscle balance will make them better. Instructional DVD included detailing pre- and post- practice and game routines. Wesley K. Cox, M.D. is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in disorders of the shoulder and elbow, and sports medicine. Dr. Cox is extensively trained in sports medicine and shoulder and elbow surgery, and his practice is limited to just that. He has operated on and cared for baseball play- ers ranging from Little League to the Major League and has significant experience as a team physician. Several of his pa- tients are currently on starting rosters in Major League Base- ball. Additionally, he has developed a specific youth baseball sports performance training and rehabilitation program that has become an integral part of his orthopedic practice.
