Aaron Boone’s baseball career is likely over after it was decided that he needs open heart surgery:
Aaron Boone of the Houston Astros says he will have open heart surgery to replace an aortic valve.
Boone made the announcement Wednesday, saying he has known about his heart condition since college but a routine physical determined he needed surgery. It is not an emergency, but doctors indicated the procedure was needed.
He said doctors told him he could play baseball when he recovers, but he’s not sure if he will.
I’m sure even Red Sox fans wish him a speedy recovery.
Hope and good feelings notwithstanding, if Jay Jaffe thinks he’s going to get his 28th round pick back in our Scoresheet League, he’s got another thing coming.
