Diamonds' Team Physician Throws 1st Pitch
Diamonds star pitcher, Monica Abbott, and first base/pitcher, Megan Gibson, liked what they saw when Dr. Petty threw out the first pitch at their game against the Chicago Bandits on July 18, 2010. Dr. Petty was relieved to throw a strike. "I didn't care if it hit the press box. I was going to throw it hard," he said afterward.
Dr. Andrews was the team physician for the Redskins and Dr. Bergfeld was team physician for the Browns. Dr. Petty was the assistant team physician for the Redskins during his Fellowship with Dr. Andrews in 2002.
Dr. Bergfeld was Dr. Petty's mentor while he was a resident at the Cleveland Clinic, where he assisted Dr. Bergfeld with the Browns.
