New York Mets manager Terry Collins has been taken to the hospital, according to assistant General Manager John Ricco. He is alert, according to Ricco. He was transported to the hospital after not feeling well before Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Collins has been a pro baseball manager since 1983. He got his first gig in the Majors with the Houston Astros in 1993. He never had a losing season in Houston, but he was fired in 1996 after a late season collapse. Collins was then hired by the Anaheim Angels less than a month later.
Collins resigned from that position in 1999 just 29 games into the season. He produced winning seasons in his first two years, but he resigned after players had petitioned for Collins’ firing. Collins then returned to the Majors in 2010 as manager of the Mets.
We here at The Athletes Hub wish Terry a very quick recovery.
