Former MLB Infielder & Manager Art Howe In ICU For Coronavirus
Former Major League Baseball infielder and manager Art Howe is in intensive care in Houston as he is dealing with coronavirus.
On Thursday, the 73-year-old Howe said that he has been experiencing symptoms of the virus since May 3. After testing positive, Howe tried to recover from the virus at home but was eventually taken to a hospital on Tuesday. Howe described this experience as unlike anything he has gone through in his life. He said that he needs to be fever free for 24 hours so he can be released from the hospital.
During an 11-year career as a player from 1974-1985, Howe played across the infield for the Pirates, Astros and Cardinals. After his playing days, Howe became a manager, first with the Astros from 1989-1993, then with the Athletics during the ‘Moneyball era’ from 1996-2002, and finally with the Mets for the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
