CINCINNATI (AP) _ Marge Schott broke her hip when she fell in her driveway hours after the Reds lost their season opener.

Schott, 69, was hospitalized after the fall Tuesday night and was undergoing surgery Wednesday.

``It had been raining, it was slippery,'' said fire Lt. Dean Winkelman.

Schott, owner of the Reds, has been banned from running the baseball team through this season for offensive remarks she made about minorities in 1996.
