    What "career-ending injury" did Bob Groom suffer in 1917?

  2. Thanks for the question..I enjoy looking up players to see how they performed.

    Bob Groom was drafted in 1908 by the Chicago Cubs (The curse is alive as Babe Ruth suffered a career ending injury after being drafted by the Cubbies). In 1911 he won the NL Rookie Of The Year and Gold Glove. He suffered a torn rotator cuff ending his career. His final totals were: 87-90, 2.95 ERA, & 855 K's.
