St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Jim Edmonds
The four-time All-Star shared his experience Saturday on his Instagram Stories, writing: “Held off as long as I could. I thought I was tough enough to get through. This virus is no joke. #gethealthy.”
Edmonds was released from the hospital and posted an update later Saturday from his home, saying in his Instagram Stories video that he is still awaiting his coronavirus test results but that he did test positive for pneumonia, which he said he had never had before.
“Trying to rest up and get better. Just wanted to thank everyone for their wishes,” Edmonds said.
“I’m home, I’m feeling pretty good and I’m doing the best I can to rest up. Thank you again everyone.”
