Wedge suffered the stroke before the Mariners game on July 22. He first felt something wrong in his head, then his legs and his vision. At that point he called for Mariners trainer Rick Griffin, who immediately started helping Wedge off the field. Wedge said by the time he got to the top of the dugout steps he was "dead weight."
Wedge said he's made significant changes and intends on managing the rest of the season without restrictions.
