Stephania Bell of ESPN.com reports that the Dodgers will soon make Sue Falsone the first female head physical trainer in MLB history when they announce her hiring next week.
Not only that, according to Bell she’ll be the first head physical trainer in any of the four major sports.
Falsone has served as a consultant to the Dodgers since 2007 as part of her job as the vice president of performance physical therapy and team sports at Athletes’ Performance in Arizona.
Curt Schilling rehabbed with Falsone when he was pitching for the Red Sox and told Bell that he “can’t imagine anyone more equipped to get that position, both from an intelligence perspective and the makeup of her personality.”
