From Clif of http://Raysrenegage.mlblogs.com I found this:
I recently heard Zimmer had been absent from his customary seat in the Trop. since right after the first home series against the New York Yankees, I became nervous and anxious. I have come to find out Zimmer has been has been hospitalized in the last week with a kidney condition and will soon begin the dialysis process. I came to find out “The Zim” has been hospitalized 3 times in the last 5 weeks for diabetic related ailments,
Zimmer’s son Tom offered a nugget of future hope today when talking about Zim again taking his rightful spot again in Tropicana Field. “Once his Father gets comfortable with the dialysis schedule and routine he should be back with the Rays”.
Get well Zim. You got all of baseball rooting for you.
Here is a picture Jon SooHoo posted in his blog http://dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com from 1990. Don Zimmer, Tommy Lasorda & Harry Caray.
Is been so long since I’ve seen a “skinny” Lasorda. Do some of you remember when he was on that Slim Fast diet?
Dodgers lost the first game in Chicago. Tomorrow’s game at 10:05 Pacific Time.
Dodgers come back Monday to play the Giants. I will be a “Tour Guide” for a returning soldier that is making his dream a reality to travel to all 30 stadiums. He should be at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday. I will tell you more about later. His blog is at http://baseballdreamin.blogspot.com/2012/02/trip.html
