Orioles opening day is Friday. Should something…exciting happen, such as knocking the Red Sox out of the playoffs in game 162, you might want to refrain from the kind of screaming you can see in the video above.

So says Dr. Lee Akst, director of the Johns Hopkins Voice Center. He’s here today to tell Tom how to cheer without giving yourself polyps and nodules on your vocal cords, and what kinds of professions put people at most risk for voice problems–and it’s not just singers.
