Paul Christian: Phillies' star owes career to Mayo Clinic doctor

Posted on October 29th, 2009 by Kelley Luckstein

Ever try playing golf with a wrist so painful that it hurt like crazy even at the slightest movement?  Or the same with hockey or bowling. Tennis anyone?  Jayson Werth plays baseball for a living and his left wrist became so painful that he seriously thought about retiring…

 

One day Werth went to get the mail, where he met a neighbor friend who suggested a visit to the Mayo Clinic…

 

He is in the middle of a two-year, $10 million contract with the Phillies and has repeatedly said through interviews that he owes his career to Mayo Clinic and specifically Richard Berger.
