Matheny retires

by Bob Timmermann

Mike Matheny, most recently with San Francisco as well as St. Louis, Toronto, and Milwaukee, retired after 13 major league seasons as a catcher because of the lingering effects of concussions.

In early December, Matheny underwent another extensive battery of tests at the Sports Concussion Program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center to determine if his symptoms had subsided. They had not. He said that on Dec. 28 he tried to exercise and after his heart rate had been elevated he experienced the same troublesome symptoms for a day and a half, such as fatigue, memory problems and a tough time focusing and seeing straight.

I was going to comment, but I forgot what I was going to say after I walked to the bedroom and back. Whoo!

I have the same symptoms, but it's cause by walking into the office every Monday - Friday.

Seriously, this sort of condition must be pretty awful to deal with every day - frustrating. I feel for the guy.

(At least I used the correct "it's". Or maybe part of me wanted to write "its cause is".)
