Dodgers Name First Female Head Athletic Trainer in History of Pro Sports
Little known fact: we L.A. residents are trailblazers. But we are also (clearly) a humble people, and that's why it was with little fanfare that our very own Dodgers named Sue Falsone the head athletic trainer/physical therapist, making her "the first female head athletic trainer in the history of major professional sports," according to the Daily Breeze.
Falsone, 37, was hired by the Dodgers in 2007 as a physical therapist. In her new role, she's taking over for Stan Conte, who's been promoted to senior director of medical services.
Falsone also serves as the vice president of Athletes' Performance, a Phoenix-based company that offers training services and programs for professional athletes.
