Longtime SF Giants coach Tim Flannery has been hospitalized with a staph infection for the second time in the last month.
According to a column by Bruce Miller in the San Diego Union-Tribune, former SF Giants coach Tim Flannery has been hospitalized with a staph infection for the second time in less than a month. Just three weeks ago, Flannery was hospitalized to help treat the same infection. However, he was released after responding well to antibiotic treatment. It appears that his progress has stalled.
Flannery became the Giants third-base coach in 2007 when Bruce Bochy was hired away from the Padres. He served in that role until 2014 when he stepped away from an on-field coaching role with the team. Since, Flannery has worked as an analyst with NBC Sports Bay Area and toured with his bluegrass band, The Lunatic Fridge.
