July 11 - International Hamate Bone Awareness Day!
Apparently 1,000 swings a week.. every week.. since you were 12 has its downside..
Upside... If they simply remove it.. you can't fracture it again!! For those with the issue... don't try to repair.. just remove the damn thing.. trust me. I tried the former and should have went straight to the latter.
I join some other "ok" players who no longer have a hamate hook in their knob hand:
Tony Gwynn Jr., Ken Griffey Jr., Jim Thome, J.D. Martinez, Giancarlo Stanton, Jose Bautista, Dustin Pedroia, Jose Ramirez, Troy Tulowitzki , Nick Markakis, & Pablo Sandoval to name just a few. They don't need one. I don't need one. 206-0.5 = 205.5
