CHICAGO (AP) - Former Chicago White Sox legend Minnie Minoso has been hospitalized in Chicago after falling from his boat.
Team spokesman Scott Reifert tells WMAQ-TV (http://bit.ly/1m66pCs ) the 88-year-old was pulled from the water Friday and taken to St. Joseph Hospital for tests.
Team representatives spoke with Minoso Saturday, and the baseball great reportedly said he is ''feeling fine.''
Reifert says Minoso will likely remain at the hospital for more tests and is expected to be released Sunday.
The nine-time All-Star outfielder and Gold Glove winner made his debut at Comiskey Park in 1951. He spent 13 full seasons and part of four others in Major League Baseball until 1980.
