Good news out of Milwaukee.
Diamondbacks hitting coach Don Baylor was hospitalized after fainting in the clubhouse last night, but Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that he is back with the team for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Brewers this afternoon. In fact, he was spotted looking over some video with a Diamondbacks’ player this morning.
“I think it was just a reaction to some medication,” manager Kirk Gibson said. “They kept him overnight. They’ve done a ton of tests on him. He’s fine. He’s the toughest guy I know. We were worried about him and he was, ‘Ah, knock it off.’ He’s here. He’ll be in the dugout.”
Baylor, who turned 62 in June, is in his first season as hitting coach with the Diamondabcks after let go by the Rockies following the 2010 season. The Diamondbacks were fourth in the National League in runs scored this season after finishing eighth last year.
