He's 37 and throwing 99 mph: Meet MLB's ultimate comeback story

(Lucas Weeks) #1

Ever since I heard about it from my brother in law, @dougummel, I’ve been fascinated by the phenomenon in professional baseball called “the yips”. Basically, it’s where a professional athlete forgets how to do some basic thing… and literally cannot do it any more. One of the pitchers for the cubs that one the World Series never throws to first base, for instance.

Anyway, this is an incredible story about a guy who worked his way back from “the yips”. Has anyone heard of this in any other sport? Or maybe with professional musicians?
