Dodgers hire Sue Falsone as first female trainer in majors

Seth Livingstone of USA TODAY reports that "The Dodgers Monday named Sue Falsone their head athletic trainer, making her the first female to hold that position for any team in the four major professional sports leagues.

Falsone, 37, was the first female physical therapist in the majors when she was hired by the Dodgers. She served in that role from 2008-10 and was a consultant to the team last season.

Falsone and assistant trainer Nancy Patterson also give the Dodgers the first duo of female trainers on the same major league staff." - USATODAY
