I teach in the nationally recognized business of sports program at the
George Washington University School of Business. My courses touch
on the intersection of sports and media, law, politics and money. I also
write about the adult-managed world of youth sports - concussions,
travel ball, early specialization, overuse, Tommy John surgery. If I
pulled one quote from my reporter’s notebook for posterity it would
be Dr. Frank Jobe, the late orthopedic surgeon, commenting on overused youth pitchers: “"You know 'No pain, no gain’? I'd like to punch the guy who said that.”
