Can baseball writers do us all a favor and stop referring to UCL reconstruction surgery as “Tommy John” surgery? Nobody ever says that except baseball writers. Readers know what ligaments are and that they can be injured. We don’t call concussions “getting your bell rung” anymore, we don’t call scar tissue “cauliflower ears” anymore, and we don’t call ACL strains “a trick knee” anymore.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
