Our next show features former Cy Young winner Dr. Mike Marshall


        Opening Day  for the Phillies was a bust, but don't throw in the towel just yet! There is 161 reasons to stay on board as a fan. We'll talk about the Phils Opener as well as many more Phillies notes.      

        Our next show features one of the greatest relief pitchers from the 1970's and early 1980's, Dr. Mike Marshall. He'll be joining us to talk about his method of pitching that he says will help eliminate pitchers having arm problems like they encounter today.

         Here's a passage from Wikipedia on Dr. Marshall:

           Marshall won the National League Cy Young Award in 1974 as a member of the Dodgers as well as being named the NL Pitcher of the Year by The Sporting News. He was a member of the National League All Star Team in 1974 and 1975. Marshall was also named Fireman of the Year by TSN with three different teams: in the NL in 1973 with the Montreal Expos and 1974 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and a third time in 1979 in the American League with the Minnesota Twins (sharing the award with Jim Kern).

Marshall led his league in games pitched four times, saves three times, and games finished five times. He is the major league record holder for most appearances (games pitched) in one season with 106 in 1974, 12 more than the next highest total.

Marshall attended Michigan State University, earning three degrees, including a Ph.D. in kinesiology.

Marshall teaches and advocates a pitching method he developed that he "believes could completely eradicate pitching-arm injuries" [1]
