The arm : inside the billion-dollar mystery of the most valuable commodity in sports
Passan, Jeff, author
New York, NY : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, [2016]
A Dead Man's Tendon -- Dummyball -- The Men Who Changed Baseball History -- Chimps, Quacks, and Freaks -- Young Guns -- Overuse, Underuse, and No Use -- Pay the Man -- The Second Time Around -- Rehab Hell -- Fear, Loathing, and Rotten Meat -- Land of the Rising Arm Injury Rate -- Changeup -- The Swamp of Possible Solutions -- Dog Days -- The New Frontier -- Spring.

"Yahoo lead baseball columnist offers an in-depth look at the most valuable commodity in sports -- the pitching arm -- and how its vulnerability to injury is hurting players and the game, from Little League to the majors. Every year, Major League Baseball spends more than $1.5 billion on pitchers -- five times more than the salary of every NFL quarterback combined. Pitchers are the game lifeblood. Their import is exceeded only by their fragility. One tiny band of tissue in the elbow, the ulnar collateral ligament, is snapping at unprecedented rates, leaving current big league players vulnerable and the coming generation of baseball-playing children dreading the three scariest words in the sport: Tommy John surgery."--Provided by publisher.
