Before the game the Dodgers honored Dr. Frank Jobe whose invention of the "Tommy John surgery" revolutionized sports medicine. This arthroscopic elbow surgery extended the career of many pitchers.
Before Dr. Jobe came on the field Tommy Lasorda greeted, from right to left, Darren Dreifort, Tommy John and Orel Herscheiser.
Tommy John went on to throw out the first pitch, using his "new" elbow.
