    2/19/8: Brad Arnsberg (83) Ryan eyeing opening day "Brad Arnsberg turned his arm and smiled, revealing a six-inch reminder of an operation he had nearly two decades ago. A jagged scar arcs along the right forearm of Toronto's pitching coach and ends near his elbow.  The mark is a remnant of Tommy John surgery -- an elbow ligament replacement procedure that's become commonplace among pitchers. It was still a relatively new surgery when Arnsberg went under the knife in 1989, but a lot has changed in the years since. That's one reason why Blue Jays closer B.J. Ryan, who is currently attempting a swift return from the same operation on his left elbow, doesn't bear nearly as prominent of a scar as his coach.

    "They're a lot prettier than they used to be," Arnsberg said with a laugh.

  • Baseball at midnight? Only in Alaska (Miami Herald) - ‘’It was weird,'’ said Brad Arnsberg, a former Marlins pitching coach, of the Midnight Sun experience. “You had to have foil on your bedroom windows just to keep the light from jumping in when you were trying to sleep. I remember, unfortunately, walking out of a couple of bars at three or four in the morning and it was broad daylight. It was kind of an odd feeling.'’
