Scary moment in Seattle. According to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, Mariners manager Eric Wedge was taken to the hospital tonight after he experienced dizzy spells on the field prior to a game against the Indians.
After being helped into the clubhouse by players, Wedge was evaluated by two team doctors at the ballpark. While he appeared to be feeling better, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said that he was sent to the hospital as a precaution.
“He’s fine, he’s being evaluated by our doctors,” Zduriencik said. “Everything is good, looks real good. What we’re doing is, we’re going to be very cautious about this and he’s going to get checked tonight. We’ll run him up to the hospital just to make sure we cover all of our bases. But he’s talking well, he’s fine and everything seems to be normal.”
Bench coach Robby Thompson will manage the team this evening, but Zduriencik expects Wedge to be back for tomorrow’s game.
