The first Tommy John surgery was on September 25, 1974

Young people may not know that the surgery is named after major league pitcher Tommy John who had a fine career before and after the operation. I recommend the 30 for 30 short. John and Dr. Frank Jobe, who did the operation, really didn’t know what would happen when he pitched again.
