JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 26, 2012) – ETSU assistant baseball coach Xan Barksdale is featured in the current issue of “Inside Pitch Magazine” for his use of technology in baseball.
Barksdale is the author of Catching-101: The Complete Guide for Catchers and he has developed The Catcher’s Thumb. The Catcher's Thumb is a preventative splint to be used on your glove hand and it works by protecting the second joint in the thumb from hyper-extending.
