On Episode 22 of Brand On Broadcasting hosted by Ross Brand of Livestream Universe, Baseball great Tommy John talks about his life and career

Ross Brand’s interview with baseball great Tommy John was recorded live on October 23, 2017. We are sharing it for first time as a podcast and YouTube video for the 5th Anniversary of Livestream Universe.

Ross Brand talks with former MLB all-star pitcher Tommy John, who pitched in the World Series for the Dodgers and Yankees. He discusses his remarkable career and life, including overcoming setbacks to become a baseball legend, and shared his thoughts on how the game has changed since he retired. John risked his career for a then-unknown elbow surgery that now bears his name. He came back to win 20 games 3 times and pitch until age 46 following Tommy John Surgery. He has the most wins of any lefty pitcher since 1900 not in the Hall of Fame.

288 Wins
231 Loses
