Frank Jobe: Forefather of Sports Medicine

A true forefather of American Sports Medicine, Frank Jobe, whose pioneering work preserved the careers of countless baseball players passed away on March 6, 2014 at the age of 88. His innovative spirit, professorial foresight and surgical expertise are epitomized in his revolutionary ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction technique, commonly known as Tommy John surgery. But equally central to Dr. Jobe was his dedication to family, friends, and peers. Dr. Jobe served as Head Team Physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers for an unprecedented forty years. During his tenure, he helped to found the Major League Baseball Team Physicians Association, serving as Secretary and President. His guidance helped to mold our organization and promote the medical care of all professional baseball players. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig described Dr. Jobe as “revolutionizing sports medicine”. Mr. Selig added “his wisdom elevated not only the Dodgers, the franchise he served proudly for half a century, but all of our clubs. Dr. Jobe’s expertise, as well as enthusiasm to mentor his peers, made the national pastime stronger.”
