Former major league pitcher Tommy John, for whom the career-saving elbow surgery was named in 1974, wrote a short message explaining what Dr. Frank Jobe meant to him and he put it on his website Friday morning. Jobe died Thursday at 88 years old. He recently had been hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.
