Jim Tracy Resting After Collapse; Determined To Be Nothing Serious

Late Monday night - or very, very early Tuesday morning, whichever you prefer - Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy collapsed near a set of elevators in the hotel lobby at the Winter Meetings.

Tracy was alert and responsive when emergency teams showed up and was able to stand under his own power, but he was still placed in a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital for further examination. And after a night full of tests, there's good news - Tracy's doctors have ruled out anything serious. It certainly seems that, while this was a scary episode, it will end up being no big deal.

Tracy is currently resting comfortably at the hospital as he continues to be evaluated. The current manager of the Rockies and the former manager of the Pirates and Dodgers will turn 55 years old on New Year's Eve.

Jim Tracy Collapses, Taken To Hospital; Rockies Manager Responsive

After a busy Monday at the MLB Winter Meetings, the baseball world got a scare very early Tuesday morning.

Word has spread that Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy collapsed near the lobby elevators of the Dolphin hotel while standing with two other team coaches. Tracy was conscious and responsive by the time emergency crews arrived, but he was taken to a nearby hospital, and there is not yet any update on his condition. While the fact that he was alert soon after collapsing is encouraging, this is still a frightening episode.

Tracy is set to turn 55 years old on the last day of December. He is married and is the father of three sons, and has been the Rockies manager for the better part of two seasons after taking over for Clint Hurdle early in 2009. He also previously managed the Pirates and Dodgers, and has a lifetime record of 427-383. He has twice managed in the playoffs.
