Shandler, baseball injury expert Rick Wilton and a rotating crew of experts are touring the country presenting a series of forums called "First Pitch". Inexpensive and informative half-day sessions are being offered in Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
In addition, for those who will find themselves in Florida in mid-March should consider the trek to the Gulf Coast. Shandler is offering an expanded, two-day program in Tampa on March 11-12. I am a regular at comparable forums that Shandler runs in Arizona in the fall and highly recommend them for the serious fan.
I'll be joining the First Pitch roadshow as a part of the expert panel in New York on Saturday. More details here. First Pitch link
