HOUSTON -- Longtime Astros radio announcer Milo Hamilton
suffered a heart attack and is recovering in a Houston hospital.
The 80-year-old underwent an angioplasty and had a stent put in
and is doing well.
He began experiencing chest pains on Sunday at lunch and went to
an emergency room where doctors discovered an artery that was
completely clogged.
Hamilton says he feels pretty good and is relaxed.
He hopes to be discharged later this week.
The heart attack postponed hip replacement surgery that had been
scheduled for Monday. That surgery will likely be delayed for 6-12
weeks.
Hamilton has been calling major league games since 1953 and has
been with the Astros since 1985. He began calling only home games
in 2006.
He also has worked for the Cardinals, Braves, Pirates and both
Chicago teams.
