Cincinnati Red owner Marge Schott says the commotion surrounding her suspension has damaged her health and she may not want to return to baseball when eligible.
"I don't even know if I want to remain an owner beyond November," she said in Thursday's edition of the Toronto Globe and Mail. "I'll have to think about it.
"The (suspension) has really taken its toll on me. The skin on both my legs has opened up and they're fully wrapped. I get blue patches on my arms, too. I've seen four doctors and they think it's nerve-related. I just don't know if it's worth it anymore."
Schott was suspended for one year and fined $25,000 for ethnic and racial slurs. She can apply for reinstatement Nov. 1.
