Rockies' Jim Tracy Collapses, Taken To Fla. Hospital

Early Tuesday morning, Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy collapsed near the lobby elevators of the Dolphin Hotel at the Disney World Resort. The Denver Post reports that Tracy was with coaches Carney Lansford and Tom Runnells at the time. Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that:

Tracy was conscious and responsive when he was being attended to, and stood with assistance. After several minutes of being examined, he was taken from the hotel on a stretcher.

He was taken to a local hospital and underwent tests for several hours. However, a diagnosis has yet to be determined. Tracy lives part-time in Florida and was meeting with Colorado management earlier in the day during baseball's annual Winter Meetings.

He coached the Los Angeles Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates before joining the Rockies' organization in 2009 as then-manager Clint Hurdle's bench coach. Tracy assumed the manager's position in 2009 when Clint Hurdle was fired. Tracy led the Rockies to a Wild Card berth in 2009 and an National League Manager of the Year Award. In 2010, his team finished in third place with an 83-79 after the team went 1-13 during the final weeks of the season.
