Earlier this summer New York Yankees catcher Jose Molina and Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Snyder both suffered groin injuries on the same night. Molina was hit in the groin with a fastball. Snyder caught a foul tip in the groinand fractured his left testicle.
These injuries are common in baseball and so the question begs to be asked...is that protective cup doing its job? With balls flying at 80mph towards sensitive areas of the male body, isn't there a better way to protect "the family jewels?"
This week on the men’s health show on Doctor Radio, hosts Dr. Samir Taneja and Dr. Andrew McCullough welcome Yankees Team Physician Dr. Stuart Hershon to discuss some of the latest nasty testicular sports injuries - including the cases of Molina and Snyder - and to take calls from listeners around the country.
As the Tour de France is in full swing, Dr. McCullough will also discuss cycling injuries.
