Franklin OK After Health Scare

Just spoke to Thunder manager Tony Franklin.

Franklin, as has been reported elsewhere by numerous folks, was taken to the hospital prior to last night’s game. Turns out the 60-year-old baseball veteran experienced chest pains, but he was checked out and given a clean bill of health.

Franklin is resting comfortably at home. He’s going to take a few days off and will likely re-join the team at a point in the very near future, although the exact time has yet to be determined.

But the most important part is that Franklin is OK. I’d need much more space than what I have to even begin to tell you how beloved and respected that man is at the ballpark, and that includes in the press box. Extremely happy and relieved to see it wasn’t anything major, and I very much so look forward to seeing him again soon.
