Discussion: rotator cuff rehab

Had surgery 10 years ago, throwing from second to first after 6 months was a painful experience. It took well over a year to be at 80%. I wasn't pain free for 18 months but my velocity returned about 2 years, and that was being very religious about my rehab and exercising faithfully. Of course, being in my 60's and playing at SS all these years at a high level, my arm isn't as strong as years ago, but fellow teammates and friends say I have one of the strongest arms they see among the 60 YR olds. I have had bouts with tendonitis that lasts for a few months here and there over the last few years, but because of the constant exercising I am satisfied with my throwing and can throw out the young guys in league play. By the way, I have retorn my rotator about two years ago and now have 90% tear in the rotator, and arthritic fluid in the shoulder, but has not affected my throwing because of all the exercise work I have done. But the point is, don't stop strengthening your arm, especially all the muscles that make up your shoulder area. I still have lack of strength in certain shoulder functions because of the tear, but tell your therapist what you are trying to accomplish and get the proper techniques to specifically strengthen all areas within the shoulder area concentrating on the YOUR throwing motion.
Good Luck To All

This is definitely one of those "No Pain - No Gain"

It's amazing to me that some teams can send in an appeal and get dropped down JUST before the Worlds and then go on and win the division they are dropped to. Last year it was HMR who played as Frankenstein at Vegas. I play on a team that has been AAA for since their inception. We have won many tournaments but have NO home run hitters, we just out hit everyone. We have since moved up to Major and find it a tough go playing teams that hit 5-10 home rums a game when we hit 2 in seven tournaments this year. I can guarantee you that although their was a three home run limit in Phoenix, Minn. Masters had to have hit at least 30 home runs in their several games. I'm sure all the 55 AAA teams appreciated some Major team dropping down just in time to take the championship hopes away from them. Not to pick on the MN Masters, but as many of you have written, it getting to the time when players should be rated and not teams. Just change your team name and enter the Nationals where you think you're guaranteed to win a ring. I have several rings and just want to be competitive with a chance. I'm tired of playing AA or AAA teams that hit 10 home runs in a game and feel that they shouldn't play against the guys who also hit 10 homers a game

How about Minnesota Masters, a Major team getting dropped down to AAA and then winning. Go figure!
