MIAMI (AP) - Former major league manager and All-Star Jim Fregosi is hospitalized in Miami after suffering an apparent stroke while on a cruise for baseball fans.
A spokeswoman for MSC Cruises says the 71-year-old Fregosi became ill Tuesday as the MSC Divina was headed from Grand Cayman to Cozumel, Mexico. The ship returned to Grand Cayman and Fregosi was later taken to a hospital in Florida.
Fregosi currently works as an executive for the Atlanta Braves, which didn't respond to requests Thursday for comment.
Fregosi managed the Philadelphia Phillies to the 1993 National League pennant and the 1979 California Angels to their first American League Western Division title.
He played in the majors from 1961 to 1978. His best seasons came with the Angels, where he was six-time All-Star.
