I was at this great site that basically explained the whole shoulder, its tendons(the rotator cuff), the ligaments, and the surrounding muscles that support the shoulder and I didn’t know there were ligaments in the shoulder and I was wondering if there has even been a tear of any of these ligaments during pitching?? I mean, all you ever hear is someone tore their rotator cuff or labrum but I have never heard of these ligaments mentioned before. I know Ginny won’t be in until the beginning of the week so no rush.

Clark, There are 29 muscles that comprise the shoulder joint. And each muscle has at least one ligament since ligaments connect bone to bone or catilage to bone. They are the support for the joint. While tendons attach muscle to bone. So that’s why the entire support structure must be strengthened including all the supporting soft tissue. If you are doing the exercises in the manual and the videos believe me you are working everything. And this is why you must work the body from all different directions so that all the connective muscles, ligaments and tendons get worked and stay stretched.
