FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. -- Happy birthday to Franklin Lakes' Tommy John!
John, who was a Major League Baseball pitcher and four-time all-star, turns 73 on Sunday, May 22.
John pitched for six teams including two stints for the Yankees from 1979-1982 and again from 1986-1989.
John compiled 288 wins over his career, but is best known for the revolutionary ulnar collateral replacement surgery performed on him that now bears his name.
