DRAVECKY INJURES ARM IN CELEBRATION

SHARE DRAVECKY INJURES ARM IN CELEBRATION

Dave Dravecky, who battled back from cancer only to break his arm pitching, injured his arm in the post-game celebration on the field Monday after San Francisco won the National League pennant, the Giants said.

Dravecky, who was in uniform for the playoffs but not on the 24-man playoff roster, may have dislocated his left shoulder, said assistant trainer Greg Lynn. He will be examined at the Palo Alto Clinic on Tuesday by team physician Gordon Campbell, who helped Dravecky rehabilitate his arm from cancer surgery."He was running out to the mound after the final out, prepared to protect himself, and somebody ran into him from behind," Lynn said two hours after the game in the Giants' nearly deserted clubhouse. "A lot of guys were saying he separated it, but that's not we heard in the training room. We'll know tomorrow."
