[Extract] For baseball players, the value of throwing the ball with great force is obvious. For pitchers, high velocity pitching (throwing heat) is an important determinant of success. For infielders, it is often the difference in a batter being out or safe at first base. And for outfielders, it can lead to throwing out the crucial runner at home plate. However, this repetitive throwing action at such high velocity frequently results in upper extremity injuries.
