Baseball Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda, 80, was rushed to a Bay Area hospital on Monday night, according to one of Cepeda’s family members. There is no information on Cepeda’s condition or the reason he was hospitalized.
Cepeda is known as one of the greatest baseball players in Giants history. He made 7 All-Star teams and won NL MVP in 1967. He also played for the Cardinals, Braves, A’s, Red Sox and Royals before retiring.
He became only the second Puerto Rican player to make the Hall in 1999.
