PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Jack Buck, the St. Louis Cardinals’ play-by-play radio announcer, remained hospitalized after complaining of weakness and pain in his lower back.
Buck, who also works for CBS on its network telecasts, left the broadcast booth during the Cardinals’ game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night and was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. He was in fair but stable condition Wednesday, hospital spokeswoman Kellyann McDonnell said.
