To summarize this article I would say Tommy John surgery is every baseball players worst nightmare. Tommy John surgery is the hardest surgery to recover from, for baseball players. It can easily end a baseball career. Tearing the UCL in the arm causes people to have this surgery. The UCL is connected to the ulna in the forearm when you tear it, its hard to even move it. As a baseball player my reaction to this is frightening. Having that surgery would end my career and chances of playing college baseball. Hearing you need Tommy John surgery is like hearing you have a terrible disease. I learned what exactly Tommy John surgery is from this article. It made me much more aware of how bad it is.
