Dr. Gregory Nicholson, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush sports medicine shoulder specialist, is featured in an article in Education Week, which addresses the national mandate requiring states to regulate pitch count for high school baseball players by 2017.

Dr. Nicholson discusses the importance of this decision to protect high school pitchers. He explains that they are at risk of injury by trying to "throw faster and harder than ever in hopes of playing college ball and making the pros."
