Congratulations, Sue Falsone

First Kim Ng, now Sue Falsone. From "Sources: Sue Falsone to join Dodgers" at ESPNLA.com:

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to announce early next week the hiring of Sue Falsone as their new head physical therapist/athletic trainer, sources told ESPN.com.

Falsone will become the first woman to serve as head athletic trainer or physical therapist of a team in any of the four major U.S. professional sports leagues. [...]

ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling rehabbed with Falsone when he was pitching for the Boston Red Sox.

"I can't imagine anyone more equipped to get that position, both from an intelligence perspective and the makeup of her personality," Schilling said when told of Falsone's impending hire with the Dodgers. "She was destined for this." [...]

Stan Conte, the team's current director of medical services, is expected to remain with the organization.

Wonder if this has anything to do with the Dodgers' injury-ravaged 2011? Looking forward to seeing if Falsone's work can bring us a healthier 2012.

I'm predeicting a rash of "groin" injuries this coming season!

I suppose that's better than a rash of groin rashes.

So happy for my buddy Sue. She is truly a great person and great at her job. She works harder than Mr. C's liver.
