Collins cleared to leave hospital, return to New York

NEW YORK (AP) Mets manager Terry Collins has been cleared to leave a Milwaukee hospital and planned to return to New York and be back in the dugout for Tuesday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The 67-year-old Collins, the oldest manager in the major leagues, felt sick before Sunday's game against the Brewers and was held overnight at Froedtert Hospital in nearby Wauwatosa.

New York said Monday that Collins was examined by Dr. Brian-Fred Fitzsimmons, that tests were negative, and that he had been cleared to fly home.


The story has been corrected to show that the Mets face the Pirates, not the Phillies, on Tuesday night.
