Dr. Frank Jobe and former pitcher Tommy John joined Mack Rosenberg and me on July of 2013 as part of our 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame Edition of One on One. Dr. Jobe made a substantial impact on the game of baseball by pioneering Tommy John surgery in 1974. The surgery helped repair ligament damage in Tommy’s elbow and it was the first kind of this type of procedure.
As part of our series of interviews on Hall of Fame Weekend, Mack Rosenberg and Nolan Silbernagel talked to Jim Gates and Tim Wiles about the new book released by the Baseball Hall of Fame: “Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame.” Jim is the Librarian and Tim is the Director of Research and both were major contributors to the book, which is filled with photos of artifacts, some not currently on display, and the history behind them.
