PLAYER: Tommy John, New York Yankees
DATE: 7/27/1988
COMPLEX SAYS: Most people know Tommy John for the revolutionary surgery named after him, but the pitcher actually had a decent career, racking up four All-Star selections his 26-year run. However, one distinction he'd rather forget is being one of only two players to commit three errors on one play. In a game against the Milwaukee Brewers John fumbled a grounder, threw past first base, then bobbled the relay throw from right field before throwing past the catcher. This was all done post-surgery. Medical malpractice, anyone?
