SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Noah Lowry can barely hold his two young daughters with his left arm, let alone contemplate ever throwing another pitch.
Even the task of taking the mound for a ceremonial first toss practically makes him cringe. Lowry insists that would be impossible with his troublesome left side and the regular pain he still experiences despite four surgeries to try to fix it all.
The very arm that made Lowry a first-round draft pick and landed him a long-term contract at age 25 forced him out of baseball.
Now, he is in a good place - three years after his career ended prematurely with a canceled throwing session, and nearly six years since he last pitched in a major league game for the Giants.
