DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies general partner Charlie Monfort is recovering from a fall that sent him to the hospital.
Team spokesman Jay Alves said Wednesday evening that Monfort was due to be released from a hospital in Scottsdale, Ariz., the team's new home for spring training. He wouldn't release any other details.
The 51-year-old Monfort is a club founder and has been one of the team's managing general partners since 1992. He is entering his ninth season as chairman and CEO of the club. Before that, he served as the team's vice chairman, a position his brother, Dick, now holds.
