SLU AT Students Learn About Baseball and More

Tony Garofalo, former Athletic Trainer for SLU, the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs, gave a presentation to over 50 SLU Athletic Training Students on Wednesday, February 9th at the Busch Student Center.

He covered the topics of baseball throwing injuries and also shared many interesting stories about his time at SLU with NATA Hall of Fame Athletic Trainer Bob Bauman and his time in the major leagues working with players such as Bruce Sutter, Greg Maddux and Ryne Sandberg.  He also discussed careers in athletic training and gave advice to the students on networking and job hunting.
