Cleveland Coach Stable After Suffering Heart Palpitations

Cleveland High baseball Coach Ray Todd is expected to be released from Westlake Medical Center today after suffering heart palpitations after Wednesday’s 12-12 North Valley League tie with San Fernando.

Todd, 55, who underwent bypass surgery three years ago, was taken to the hospital late Wednesday evening by his wife Janet.

Cleveland assistant Marty Siegel said that Todd complained of a rapid heartbeat minutes after the game was called because of darkness at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Todd spent two days in intensive care and was listed in stable condition Thursday night, Janet Todd said.


“He’s been fine all day,” she said Thursday night. “We expect him home (today), maybe by noon.”

With Todd sidelined, Cleveland lost its first game of the season, 9-7, in a rematch at San Fernando on Thursday.
