Sue Falsone no longer with Dodgers

Sue Falsone, who became the first female head athletic trainer in professional sports when the Los Angeles Dodgers promoted her in 2011, confirmed via Twitter that she has resigned.

Falsone, who was popular with the players and well-respected in the organization, had been affiliated with the Dodgers since 2007, initially in a consulting role and then formally on staff since 2008.

The Dodgers promoted her to head trainer in 2011 when former head trainer Stan Conte was promoted to senior director of medical services.

The Dodgers were plagued with injuries from start to finish this season, with stars Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Zack Greinke and Carl Crawford all missing a significant amount of time. In total, the Dodgers used the disabled list 25 times, most in the majors, in 2013.
