The Man Without the Famous Name

On Thursday Frank Jobe passed away. It is not a name that resonates with many people. He is someone who made a massive contribution to the game of baseball. He was a surgeon who invented a procedure to replace torn ligaments in pitcher’s arms. This surgery saved the career of many players. It was so important that the name of the pioneer is attached to the procedure. It is called “Tommy John Surgery”, after the first player to benefit from it;the brilliant surgeon who invented it did not get his name associated with it.
