HOUSTON (AP) -Longtime Astros radio announcer Milo Hamilton was recovering Tuesday in a Houston hospital after having a heart attack over the weekend.
The 80-year-old Hamilton underwent an angioplasty, had a stent put in and was doing well, the team said. He began experiencing chest pains on Sunday at lunch and went to an emergency room, where doctors discovered an artery that was completely clogged.
``I had a heart attack and there was some minimal damage,'' Hamilton said in a team release. ``Only time will tell how much. I'm feeling pretty good and I'm relaxed. Hopefully, I'll leave the hospital soon, likely on Thursday or Friday.''
The heart attack postponed hip replacement surgery that had been scheduled for Monday. That surgery will likely be delayed for six to 12 weeks.
Hamilton has been calling major league games since 1953 and has been with the Astros since 1985. He began working only home games in 2006.
He also has worked for the Cardinals, Braves, Pirates and both Chicago teams.
