Braves’ starting pitcher Tim Hudson made a miraculous comeback after
an elbow ligament replacement surgery. I thought you’d be interested
to read and share how prayer, positive thinking, and faith led Tim Hudson
back onto the pitcher’s mound.
“I hadn’t played baseball in more than a year. Thirteen months
earlier, in July 2008, I’d thrown a pitch off this same mound and felt
something grab in my elbow. I tried to pitch through the pain. But by
the sixth inning, there was no getting around it. My fastball, which I
normally throw at 91 or 92 miles per hour, had dropped to 81. I think
I tore a muscle, I told a coach when I went back to the dugout. ”
FBD Notes — Tim Hudson is having a solid fantasy baseball season thus far. Although he’s only 6-6, he has an ERA of 3.73 and an impressive WHIP at 1.09. On Monday, Hudson went 8 innings of shutout ball against the Blue Jays to earn the win. He also blasted a 2 run homer to win the game for the Braves. Not a bad night.
