MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Bobcats Media Day is set for Sunday, March 9, once again hosted by Elliot Sports Medicine at the River's Edge Conference Center at 4 p.m. Players will receive their 2014 jerseys, have portraits taken for the season, conduct interviews and meet with Elliot Sports Medicine staff in this pro-style event. Bobcats staff photographer Kevin Littlefield will be on hand for the photo shoot and members of the media are invited for player and coach interviews.
For parents, this is a great opportunity to meet with orthopaedic doctors and ask questions, learning about arm health and preventative care. In 2013, the New Hampshire Bobcats and Elliot Sports Medicine formed a partnership that combines youth baseball with the state's most comprehensive health and orthopaedic care center. Elliot Sports Medicine is the presenting sponsor and official healthcare provider of the Bobcats, an elite travel program offering instruction and long-term development of the state's top players.
The Bobcats and Elliot Sports Medicine physicians offer educational discussions on strength training, preventative care, rehabilitation and overall arm health throughout the off-season and regular season. In addition, Elliot Sports Medicine is the presenting sponsor for the Bobcats Classic on April 12-13, at Gill Stadium of Manchester.
"In a short amount of time, the New Hampshire Bobcats have established themselves as a powerful and respected program. We are thrilled to be working together and providing our extensive resources to help these kids stay healthy and chase their long-term goals," said Jonathan Mack, MD, Medical Director of Elliot Sports Medicine.
The Manchester-based Bobcats provide winter training and play a 25-30-game schedule from April into July. The rapidly growing program consists of development teams ages 11 through 15. Home games are played at St. Anselm College and Manchester Memorial High, in addition to games at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, home of the Double-A Fisher Cats.
"This partnership couldn't be more of a perfect fit. When I hurt my shoulder last year, I was blown away by the by overall experience -- from x-rays to physical therapy -- that was provided by Elliot Sports Medicine," said Kevin Gray, Bobcats director of operations. "It's comforting to know we can count on Elliot Sports Medicine for the very best in year-round healthcare for our players."
