Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Bubba's surgery is today. Probably at this very moment, or very soon. (Doctors traditionally schedule surgery for early in the morning, because they get too many emergencies and other disruptions later in the day.)
I don't know what kind of shoulder surgery Bubba's having, but rotator cuff surgery is the most common, and not unusual for a baseball player. (Throwing is hard on the shoulder.) Also, the timing sounds like rotator cuff surgery. Typically, they give you 12 weeks to see if drugs and exercise work. If not, they do the surgery, because the chance of success is much less if you wait longer than three months.
If it is rotator cuff surgery, Bubba will be out for awhile. You can't even drive for more than a month. He probably won't be allowed to throw for at least six months.
Best of luck to him. I'm sure he'd appreciate your thoughts or prayers, if you're so inclined.
