Former big-league manager and current Arizona hitting coach Don Baylor was taken to a Milwaukee hospital as a precaution after fainting Friday and is expected to remain there overnight.
According to GM Kevin Towers, Baylor had just gotten up from eating breakfast and felt lightheaded before losing consciousness.
Baylor, 61, is in his first year as the Diamondbacks’ hitting coach after being let go by the Rockies following the 2010 season. He managed the Rockies from 1993-98 and the Cubs from 2000-02, compiling a 627-689 record in nine years. Baylor also played 19 seasons in the majors and was the AL MVP in 1979.
