Schumacher stable but injury still critical
Formula One great Michael Schumacher’s condition was stable but still critical overnight as he remained unconscious following a brain injury suffered in a skiing accident, his manager said Wednesday.
Sabine Kehm told reporters that his condition has not changed since doctors said he showed small signs of improvement on Tuesday, following his second operation.
Schumacher, who turns 45 on Friday, suffered critical head injuries when he fell and struck a rock while skiing Sunday morning during a family vacation at Meribel in the French Alps. His 14-year-old son, Mick, was with him in a group of friends when the accident happened in a small, rock-strewn area of open ground between two groomed pistes.
Arbitrator to rule soon in Alex Rodriguez case
Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz is expected to rule at any time on Alex Rodriguez’s appeal of his 211-game suspension, which was imposed last August by Major League Baseball after its Biogenesis investigation into performance-enhancing drugs.
The Yankees’ third baseman was cited for violations of the joint drug agreement and Basic Agreement between MLB and the players’ association. MLB claimed Rodriguez possessed and used PEDs received from Anthony Bosch, founder of the former anti-aging clinic in Miami known as Biogenesis.
