Jim Edmonds, St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame was hospitalized with symptoms of COVID-19 and is being tested for coronavirus.
All-Star, who went four times, shared his experience on Saturday on Instagram Stories, writing: "I waited as long as I could. I thought I was strong enough to overcome it. This virus is no joke. #Gethealthy".
Edmonds was released from the hospital and posted an update on Saturday at his home, saying in his Instagram Stories video that he is still waiting for the results of the coronavirus tests, but that he tested positive for pneumonia, which he said he had never done before.
"Trying to rest and get better. I just wanted to thank everyone for their wishes," said Edmonds.
"I'm at home, I'm feeling great and I'm doing my best to rest. Thanks again everyone."
The Cardinals tweeted, "Thinking of our friend Jim Edmonds and hoping that he will start feeling better soon!"
Edmonds, an eight-time Gold Glove winner, helped lead the cardinals to the 2006 World Series title. He played most of his 17-year career at the Los Angeles Angels and Cardinals.
He currently works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest.
