SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic _ Former Dodgers third baseman Pedro Guerrero has been hospitalized in the Dominican Republic with bleeding on the brain, but a friend says the 1981 World Series co-MVP appears to be in good spirits and is speaking with people in the hospital.
Andres Vanerhorst, who visited Guerrero in the hospital, spoke with The Associated Press Monday.
The 58-year-old Guerrero was in the intensive care unit and is being treated by a neurosurgeon while undergoing further testing. He was hospitalized a day earlier and tests detected the cranial bleeding.
Guerrero spent 15 years in the major leagues with the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals. He was MVP along with Ron Cey and Steve Yeager in the Dodgers’ World Series victory over the New York Yankees.
He had a career average of .300, with 215 homeruns and 898 RBIs.
