Robinson Released From Hospital After Scare At Owners' Meetings

MLB Senior VP/Major League Operations and Baseball HOFer Frank Robinson was released yesterday afternoon from a Scottsdale hospital after several hours of observation and returned for the conclusion of owners' meetings held there. Robinson was taken by ambulance from the meetings yesterday morning after he began to feel dizzy and his heart rate soared to 190 beats per minute, more than two times a normal human rate, and showed irregularity.

Robinson said "I feel fine" after the end of another session of MLB Commissioner Bud Selig's Special Committee for On-Field Matters, and added there was no heart blockage or other cause found for the symptoms. "This has never happened before. They didn't find anything and I was given a clean bill of health, but I'll see my own doctor as a back-up," he said.
