The former player and manager Houston Astros Art Howe is in intensive care, because of the COVID-19.
“I’ve never experienced something like this,” said the man 73 years of age at the network KPCR 2, Thursday.
Howe began to feel the symptoms of the virus on may 3. He explained that his body was shaking like a leaf”, that he felt “completely drained” of its energies, and that he had “lost his sense of taste”.
He was transported to the hospital Tuesday and will not be able to leave as he will not have spent 24 hours without a fever.
“The family of the Astros think of our former player and manager Art Howe this evening [Thursday] and we wish him a speedy recovery. We are with you in Art,” wrote the team from Houston on his Twitter account.
Howe has worn the uniform of the Astros from 1976 to 1982, and he led the formation from 1989 to 1993. It has also been the manager of the Oakland a’s (1996-2002) and New York Mets (2003-2004).
