Welcome to drtylerdobos.com. I'm Ty, and I'm trying to reconcile manual therapy, strength and conditioning, and pitching mechanics in baseball. I currently do so in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Baseball Development Group (BDG). Here's a brief history of my recent adventures!

After my university baseball career was cut short due to a poorly managed shoulder injury, I realized there was a large gap in communication between manual therapy, rehabilitation, and sports performance in baseball.

 

So, I set out to change that.

 

The first step was to finish my studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC). After receiving my B. Kin out west, I hopped on a flight to attend graduate school at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) here in Toronto.

 

Midway through this degree, I began an internship at BDG, which culminated in my eventual hiring as the first employee in it's brief history. I proceeded to spend the majority of my degree trying to build a resume that I could be proud of. I took a bunch of extra curricular courses, read as many papers and books as possible, and tried to spend every free second soaking up information from one of my mentors, Dr. Stephen Osterer. 

After graduation I spent a year travelling, and found work in the German Volleyball Bundesliga as a S&C coach and workload consultant. While travelling, I realized I wanted to pursue more direct baseball related education, and enrolled in a Master's degree at Brock University. I am still currently a full-time student at Brock University studying pitching biomechanics, markerless motion capture (using pitchAI), and skill acquisition in baseball players. I'm working under the supervision of Dr.'s Mike Holmes and Mike Sonne. 

 

While working towards the completion of my thesis, I returned to BDG, where I accepted the role of Performance Director. Together with Lennon Richards, I have been busy ensuring BDG continues pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a Canadian training facility.

I've been doing both for a little over two years now. And I've learned a lot. 

But there is still more work to do. 

If you've made it this far - shoot me a DM on Twitter. Most of the cool stuff is on there anyways.
