Dr. Leuf is the only medical man, so far as we know, that has given any special attention to the injuries of base ball players, and what he writes is all the more valuable because he himself is an expert player. He is, we believe, one of the good curve pitchers in the country, has suffered from pitcher's sore arm, and can therefore write more intelligently of it. In America base ball has become an acknowledged occupation, and has its own special injuries and medical features. Physicians will be interested in Dr. Leuf's description and explanation of curve pitching.
