Player Performance Pathways – Adapting To The New Landscape

Mar 31/ 2021/

Pathways come and pathways go but never have we seen such a dramatic change in player developmental pathways like what we are seeing right now in professional baseball.
Starting this season, there are 42 fewer teams in professional baseball as the minor league contraction plan has taken place. Over 1000 players who would normally be signed to pro-ball will now be looking for places to play.
This week, we talk with Kerrick Jackson, President of the newly formed MLB Draft League, a new 6 team summer league for college and elite high school players. What role will the league play in the developmental pathway? We find out.
Staying on the subject of baseball, there are some new rules being tested this season, larger bases, controlling the shift, 15-second pitch clocks, and Robo Umps. We share our thoughts.
Also, after missing an entire season, are you ready to play? We need to approach the return to sport with great caution. These are not normal times. We’ll discuss what you need to consider as we get set to return to play.

Join Jeff as he interviews Dr Yoni Freedhoff; The Diet Fix: Why Diets Fail and How to Make Yours Work

Oct 29/ 2014/

Collectively we have cut fat consumption by a third since the mid 70’s, the number of workout centers have tripled in the last 10yrs – yet obesity and overweight has doubled and tripled in the mean time and the number of new fad diets is out of control: low carb – no carb – high protein – no protein -no fat -beach -paelo – vegan…..

The deal is diets don’t work! In fact stats have shown that 90% of all diets fail yet right now the diet industry takes in about $60 Billion per year in North America alone!
Make no mistake the Big Food industry is in it to make money – fast food, junk food, the supplement industry. It’s crazy to think the stress on the health care dollar is reaching a breaking point.
In fact health issues due to overweight and obesity have taken over from smoking as the number 1 preventable cause of death…SCARY.

We ask the question which is more effective for modifying weight – diet or exercise?
Answer: Of your modifiable weight it’s 80% Diet, 20% Exercise

If you are an athlete, parent, coach or someone conscious about the food you and your family eat, I strongly suggest you follow Dr. Freedhoff’s blog WeightyMatters.ca
One of my favourite posts of his – Juice is not a *#@> fruit!

Join us to listen to Yoni Freedhoff, he is not afraid to call a spade a spade. and that is why we like him!
