Baseball Health Network founder Steve Hayward brought the BHN story to a national audience with his January 4, 2017 appearance on “The Sports Doctor” Internet radio show hosted by Dr. Robert Weil.
Steve and Dr. Weil talked about the history of the BHN, the epidemic of arm issues in baseball, especially at the youth level, the bad rap curve balls are getting, and how both parents and players need to be pro-active with regard to the physical health of athletes.
