Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona, 45, was taken to a New York City hospital Thursday after saying he had tightness in his chest. The Major League Baseball team was visiting its arch rival, the New York Yankees.

Francona reportedly complained all morning Thursday that he wasn't feeling well. He took the 8 a.m. team bus to Yankee Stadium and started his usual daily routine, the Associated Press reported.

He was later taken by ambulance to New York Weill-Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan. A Red Sox spokesman said Francona was undergoing "precautionary tests."

Red Sox team trainer Jim Rowe went with Francona to the hospital and team doctor Thomas Gill was monitoring Francona's condition by phone from Boston, the wire service said.
