BOSTON (AP) -- Baseball Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski has been
hospitalized in Boston for what his spokesman called something
"serious." The spokesman, Dick Gordon, would not give any details or say when Yaz had been admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital.
When asked if it was serious, Gordon said: "Any time you are in
the hospital, it's got to be pretty serious." The 68-year-old Yastrzemski was baseball's last player to win the Triple Crown in 1967 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1989.
