Rockies Owner Improving After Fall
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Colorado Rockies owner Charlie Monfort is recovering from a concussion he sustained in a fall earlier this week.
The Rockies issued a statement Friday saying that Monfort is “resting comfortably” in a local hospital. This is the first spring the Rockies have trained in Scottsdale after moving north from Tucson.
The 51-year-old Monfort is a club founder and has been one of the team’s managing general partners since 1992. He is entering his ninth season as chairman and CEO of the club. Before that, he served as the team’s vice chairman, a position his brother, Dick, now holds.
