GCBL Blog HOF Inductee, Dr. Lewis Yocum

Any self-respecting person would rather die than have anything to do with this blog. As such, we will name personalities to our HOF only after they pass away.

Try to name ten people who have done more for baseball players, and baseball, than Dr. Lewis Yocum. Quite simply, you can’t. Yocum, his teacher Dr. Frank Jobe, and Dr. James Andrews have completely rescued hundreds of careers. They boiled TJS down to such a science that a torn UCLis now a bump in the career path, not a brick wall. Yocum operated on all and sundry, but was also the Angels’ everyday team doctor.

Dr. Lewis Yocum, you’re a stud. Rest in peace.
