J.J. Thobe didn't accomplish anything outstanding as a pitcher for the Santa Ana Cardinals this summer. He didn't pitch a no-hitter or even a shutout for the Cardinals, a team of mostly college-age athletes who played a free-lance schedule. His greatest feat was pitching three consecutive innings, hardly big news for most pitchers. In Thobe's case, however, it's another impressive step as he continues his way back from shoulder surgery he underwent in May, 1990.
