Yankees trainers honored as best in baseball

|
NEW YORK -- The Professional Baseball Athletic Trainer Society named Gene Monahan and Steve Donohue of the Yankees the best athletic trainers in Major League Baseball for 2010.

Each season, members of the PBATS vote on who they believe is MLB's Training Staff of the Year. The criteria for the award, according to a PBATS release, is "dedication to health of their athletes and a demonstrated desire to advance the profession of athletic training."

"With a total of almost 65 years of combined service as professional baseball athletic trainers with the New York Yankees, Gene Monahan and Steve Donohue have set an example for all athletic trainers to follow, working on possibly the toughest and brightest stage in all of professional sports," Richie Bancells, president of PBATS and head athletic trainer for the Orioles, said in a statement. "The length of Gene and Steve's tenure in baseball is only exceeded by the extent of their generosity and leadership in helping advance fellow athletic trainers. We salute their wonderful efforts and thank them for being premier representatives for PBATS."
