Mike Port vice president of baseball operations for the Boston Redsox was in a stable condition today after suffering a heart attack at the weekend.
He fell i'll on a shopping trip on saturday, Port is 58.
Port remained intubated and connected to a respirator but was responding to verbal commands, The Boston Globe reported in Monday's editions.
According to the newspaper, medical response teams had to use a defibrillator in the ambulance and twice in the hospital to shock Port's heart back
into rhythm. Because Port fell during the attack, doctors were expected to conduct tests to rule out whether he suffered any head or spine
Port served as Boston's interim general manager during the 2002 season after the team's new owners fired Dan Duquette. Port assumed his current
position after Theo Epstein became GM before the 2003 season.
