Wiffleboy On The Mend From MCL Injury

This morning Sean Steffy, better known as “Wiffleboy,” made a post on his facebook page letting followers know that he had “a common injury that is side effect of my lifelong obsession with throwing things.” He noted that during the 2012 season he noticed “a distinct difference in my arm” and that it never “healed and rebounded the way it always had before.” He visited a specialist in April 2013 that confirmed he had torn his MCL ligament in his right elbow. He says the experienced has “humbled me athletically” but he has not let it get the best of him.” He sees a silver lining in the situation saying that he now has an “opportunity to learn and prepare for the next big outing. Not to mention that I’ll come back throwing even harder in about a years time. Muhaha!” 

Now some of you may be thinking ‘Hey, why did this guy played during the 2013 season if he needed Tommy John surgery?’ Valid question. Steffy admits that he could have not played in the 2013 season but instead decided to continue playing to try to “help my GSWL fast pitch team reach the #2 regular season ranking as well as finish second at nationals. ” But it appears that Steffy has already had the surgery judging by the picture he included of his wrapped up arm along with the post. He still does not show any signs of slowing down for 2014 as he plans to continue providing advice for aspiring wiffleball pitchers across the country through his website and youtube channel.

Sean Steffy – Published Author

Sean “Wiffleboy” Steffy amazes once again with the announcement that he is now a published author. But don’t be looking for locations for book signings quite yet. It’s a Kindle release only (so far) and is only about 17 pages long. It’s uncertain if that’s a good length for a pitching program book but this is wiffleball so it’s not exactly deserving of Oxford thickness. Still this is a huge addition Steffy has contributed to the sport and for only $4.99 you can get it for your Kindle. Many will probably debate the effectiveness this book will have on aspiring pitchers. It does make one wonder if this program would have been more effective if it were an in-depth video series program to SHOW how to become a better pitcher so that you can win more games. In any event it’s a huge step for the man known as Wiffleboy28 and this product shows just how he has cemented his place in the sport for superior pitching and advice.
