Former Expos pitcher Bill Lee, still very active at 75, collapsed in the bullpen in right field Friday while warming up for a game with the Savannah Bananas.
According to the ESPN network, “Spaceman” left the field on foot with assistance. He was admitted to a local hospital.
According to CBS Boston television, the Bananas owner told the crowd that Lee “is back, he’s fine, he’s talking and he’s feeling strong. Bill will be fine.”
The dazzling athlete continues to serve in various exhibition fights. Notably, he attended Expos Fest in early August along with several former members of the Montreal band.
Lee, who was inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame, played 14 seasons in Major League Baseball, including four in Montreal.
