R.A. Dickey: “Our Bodies Aren’t Meant To Generate Arm Speeds Of 100 MPH”
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey joins Jason and Randy to promote the “Dickies Workwear” contest he’s been involved in to reward perseverance. He also spoke on the obvious reasons he got involved with the company.
When asked about if he’d paid attention to the Wells report and the locker room hazing he has seen or been a part of in a baseball locker room, Dickey said “I’ve been playing for 17-18 years and thankfully we haven’t had and episode like that. There’s always rookie hazing that goes on that we’ll address from time to time, but we’re always paying attention, but thankfully we hadn’t had a situation like that.”
He also discusses all the pitching injuries in baseball and why he thinks they are happening and how they could be prevented. He finishes up discussing his own personal story and how he decided to start throwing knuckleballs.
