Blessing has that ability to knock people out when they simply hear him sing and play the piano.  Now that his abilities have stretched into songwriting on both the piano and guitar, his talent has not gone unnoticed.   Last fall, he was a contestant on Season 7 of The Voice, and appeared over several episodes.

Velocity and Vulnerability: Baseball Pitchers and the Limits of Human Performance

University Park Campus Dedeaux Field (DDX)

Dedeaux Field, Los Angeles, 90089

11:00am

(3/31) Will baseball pitchers ever throw 120-mile-per-hour fastballs, or have we reached the human bodys speed limit? What does it mean that we expect athletes to transcend limits and seek perfection? Questions like these pertain to both the beautiful science of biomechanics and the often-unforgiving culture of sports fandom. Join us for a conversation under the lights of USCs storied Dedeaux Field with major-league phenomenon and USC alumnus Mark Prior, pitching legend and USC alumnus Tom House, USC kinesiology professor Jill McNitt-Gray and Keck School of Medicine orthopedic surgeon Dr. George Hatch, who works closely with USCs Athletic Medicine Department, providing care for student-athletes and sports teams. After the discussion, test your arm against the pros with radar guns and motion-capture equipment. In conjunction, the USC Libraries and USC Athletics will present an exhibition of baseball memorabilia and other items from their collections, including the Biomechanics of Motion collection in the USC Digital Library.
