    Brandon Weeden

    Just curious why did Brandon Weeden quit baseball and turn to football? A quick google search on the topic didn't amount to much (for me at least). I found his baseball stats but since I know nothing about baseball they didn't tell me anything.

    Wouldn't it hurt to then throw the football, unless of course he is using his other arm.....

    Injury to arm that doesn't affect football but affects baseball.

    Brandon Weeden's shoulder derailed his baseball career; - 11.15.10 - SI Vault

    From the stories I've read, it seems like he lost the power on his fastball.

    Re: Brandon Weeden

    Thanks for the information again. I was thinking that he ended up being a bust of a draft choice in MLB / couldn't compete at that high of level in the MLB and decided to give football a try.

    Apparently throwing a football is a different motion than throwing a baseball. That's what an article I read earlier in the year said.

    less stress on a qb's arm than a pitchers arm.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I heard an amazing stat about him tonight on Fox Sports Radio. He is older than Aaron Rodgers. That was crazy to me.
