Report: Dusty Baker to Chicago Hospital for Chest X-Rays, possible Pneumonia

Mark Sheldon and John Fay are both reporting that Dusty Baker left Wrigley Field this afternoon after seeing one of thc Cubs team doctors. He went to a nearby hospital for chest X-rays to rule out the possibility of pneumonia.

Sheldon:

There were no outward signs that Baker has felt ill lately. He could be seen in the clubhouse chatting with a couple of his players. Later, he was seen by a member of the Cubs medical staff before leaving for the hospital.

Reportedly Chris Speier, bench coach, will manage the game if Baker doesn’t return in time.

Certainly everyone at the Nation wishes Dusty a speedy recovery from whatever is ailing him.

  1. Hope this is just precautionary, best wishes Dusty. As much as I griped about your lineups you’re a good baseball guy who obviously cares about the game.

  2. I hope Dusty is feeling better and able to make it back soon…but remember when Lou Brown went down the Indians went on to win the pennant that year
