DeRosa taken to hospital

MESA, Ariz. -- Mark DeRosa was taken to a local hospital during Saturday’s practice after apparently suffering an irregular heartbeat while working out.
Paramedics arrived at Fitch Park shortly after noon Arizona time. DeRosa was placed on a stretcher and left in an ambulance around 12:25 p.m.
DeRosa, who has previously experienced irregular heartbeats, was alert and sitting up when he left. The Cubs are finishing up practice now and we’ll have more as soon as it’s available.
Oh DeRo,I pray that he is O.K.,they said he had this before,this is news to me,I never knew that.
