DETROIT (AP) -- Minnesota Twins third-base coach Al Newman was released from a Chicago hospital, the team announced Friday -- 16 days after he suffered a brain hemorrhage before a game.
Newman, along with a team physician and general manager Terry Ryan, flew from Chicago to Minnesota on owner Carl Pohlad's jet. The Twins, in Detroit to play the Tigers, said Newman would return to his Minneapolis home on Friday.
Newman suffered a brain hemorrhage on Sept. 10 while the Twins were in Chicago to play the White Sox, and remained hospitalized there until Friday.
