Monahan began his athletic-training career in 1963 with the Yankees' Class-D affiliate in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., then worked from 1965-69 with Double-A teams in Columbus, Ga., and Binghamton, N.Y. After a brief stint with Triple-A Syracuse, Monahan joined the Yankees.
He's one of only a few employees to work for the organization throughout Steinbrenner's ownership, which began in 1973. Monahan was inducted into the New York State Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame in 2007, and received the National Athletic Trainers Association Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award last year.
"The New York Yankees have gone above and beyond in this most difficult time," Monahan said. "I couldn't do this alone, but with the support and love of my immediate family, my family within our organization and the dedication and expertise of many fine doctors, I look forward to resuming my role with the team this season."
