Dr. Tommy John is our guest on this week’s Lunch Break show. 

On The Show: 

What sports do your kids play? Do they play a variety of sports or just do one sport year round? The Lunch Break hosts, Art Eddy and Jon Finkel bring on Dr. Tommy John to talk about how parents need to make sure their kids play a variety of sports. 


Here is what some of our viewers said: 

Barbara Ketcherside Young kids need to do this for fun and exercise and to learn team membership–not to get the illusive college scholarships. My kids tried a little of everything–loved basketball though and even reffed. That showed them how horrible sports parents can be–even worse than theatre parents.

John Keating think variety is good when their young. they can choose later on what they like.

S.E. MorganSince kids started to specialize in sport earlier there has been an increase overuse injuries.
Matt Sullivan My son plays Baseball and Basketball. I coach his Baseball team, and I have a blast doing it.
Blake Sutherland Lacrosse, Box and Field
