Tommy John will attend the ceremony to help honor Jobe for his impact on the sport. John was diagnosed with a ruptured MCL in his left elbow in 1974 when Jobe tried a procedure in which he removed a tendon from John's forearm and repaired his elbow.
Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson says Jobe's work is a testament to the positive role of medicine in baseball's growth.
Jobe, who is in his late 80s, serves as special adviser to the chairman of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
