Rocks’ Tracy released from hospital after collapse
Question of the Day
LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. (AP) - Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy was released from a hospital Tuesday after mild arrhythmia caused him to collapse shortly after midnight at the baseball winter meetings.
Tracy and his family headed back to their home near Bradenton in the afternoon.
Rockies spokesman Jay Alves said it was not known whether Tracy had previously been diagnosed with arrhythmia _ an irregular heartbeat.
Tracy, who turns 55 on Dec. 31, was with Colorado coaches Carney Lansford and Tom Runnells when the episode occurred.
Tracy was ready to get onto an elevator at the meetings hotel when he collapsed around 1 a.m. He was carried out on a stretcher and taken to a hospital in the Orlando area.
Alves, who said he was with Tracy at the time, said the manager didn't lose consciousness. Tracy had driven over to the meetings on Sunday night from his home.
Tracy was the NL Manager of the Year in 2009 after taking over the Rockies in midseason and guiding them to the playoffs.
Colorado went 83-79 this season and finished third in the NL West.
Tracy managed the Los Angeles Dodgers from 2001-2005 and Pittsburgh in 2006-07 before taking over the Rockies.
