 COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Former major league pitcher Tommy John was on hand, appropriately enough, as Dr. Frank Jobe was honored at the baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Jobe was recognized for his impact on the sport. He developed the procedure known as Tommy John surgery when he fixed the left-hander's elbow in 1974.
A day before Hank O'Day, Jacob Ruppert and Deacon White were posthumously inducted into the shrine, Paul Hagen accepted the J.G. Taylor Spink Award for meritorious contributions to baseball writing. Tom Cheek, the late Toronto announcer, was honored with the Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting.
Also honored was Thomas Tull, the CEO of Legendary Entertainment and producer of the Jackie Robinson biopic ``42.''
``I can't believe I'm sitting here next to Tommy John and Dr. Frank Jobe,'' Tull said. ``All these gentlemen have done for the game brought them to Cooperstown. I'm just thankful I'm here.''
