    Peter Gammons suffers brain aneurysm, currently in surgery

    Just saw a report on another board that Peter Gammons was rushed to a Boston hospital with a possible brain aneuyrism. Has anyone else heard anything?

    One of the best here at the Worldwide Leader. Pete's just one of those guys that loves to talk baseball with whoever. He doesn't care if you're a cameraguy behind the scenes or a big name producer. We all wish him well here in Bristol and are praying for him and his family.

    I've always thought that Gammons had a few TIA's (mini-strokes). His speech is a little slurred, and I believe he exhibits symptoms of a neurological disorder.

    All the best to Gammons and his family. He gets a lot of crap on this board, but honestly, he's probably the best known and most inflluential baseball writer of the past 20-30 years.

    Best wishes. I love reading his column in Baseball America, and he's one of the few ESPN guys I respect.
