Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William E. Moats, MD (Summa Health System)
Description: This book discusses the injuries that occur in baseball detailing anatomical regions, biomechanics, method of injury, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. In addition to musculoskeletal issues, the book covers areas such as preseason examinations, medical problems, drug use and abuse, legal concerns, and conditioning programs.
Purpose: It is a comprehensive guide to the prevention and management of baseball injuries — worthy objectives from the contributors' and reader's perspectives.
Audience: It is written for all professionals dedicated to the care of the injured or ill baseball player. This includes physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and coaches. The principal editor is, in my opinion, one of the two leading orthopedic authorities on baseball injuries in the country.
Features: The illustrations are very good, particularly involving off-season conditioning and strengthening. Most of the references appear appropriate and current. The text is excellent. Black-and-white illustrations are very good. The appendixes, which feature topics not in the mainstream of baseball injuries, provide interesting information (i.e., coaches' perspective of the fine art of pitching, mental advantages for baseball excellence, legal aspects of treating baseball injuries, and an international baseball overview).
Assessment: This is an excellent reference for all interested in the care of baseball players. Dr. Andrews is renowned in his field, has written extensively, and has compiled a text that is a must for libraries, bookstores, and individuals. The division of the text into anatomic regions with diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention for each is very helpful. The chapter on drug abuse could have been more current (i.e., creatine usage), but the textbook may have been printed prior to the expanding interest in creatine.
