Felix Hernandez wears Dr. Lewis Yocum patch vs. Angels

Yocum examined Hernandez in the offseason before Hernandez finalized his then-record seven-year, $175 million contract extension with the Mariners.

Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez battled the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night, but did so while honoring Angels' former team physician Dr. Lewis Yocum. Yocum, a Tommy John surgery specialist and LA's orthopedist for 36 years, passed away in May.

A closer look at the road uniform by Hernandez shows the patch emblazoned with "LEW".
