    Wow, great article! Thanks for sharing the details about your management strategies Brandon!! “I wouldn’t connect blood sugar and radar readings” is great! I run and, if my BG fades, I definitely notice my speed drops, although like 6 mph to 5 mph or something like that, I dunno if that shows on radar guns!

    I read this aloud to my 14yo, baseball player, T1D son. Wouldn’t it be cool if the radar gun could also check blood sugars?!

    Thank you so much for this! My 9 year old son plays baseball and he also pitches. I’ve told him he can do anything he wants, as long as he takes care of himself. He uses the OmniPod and we arrange the rotation of pod placement based on game days (he doesn’t like to wear it on his throwing arm). It’s good to see a T1 succeed at doing something he loves!

    I met Brandon a couple years ago after a game he pitched in. He has been my hero and inspiration since I was diagnosed when I was 12.. Being an athlete myself it means a great deal to me seeing players like him living with type one. He’s a great man and ball player. I hope he gets healthy soon!
