Source: Ex-Sox pitcher Hickey in coma


Former Chicago White Sox pitcher and current batting practice coordinator Kevin Hickey is in Parkland Hospital in Arlington, Texas after being found unresponsive by hotel personnel on April 5 in his room.

Hickey’s vital signs are fine, but he is still in a coma, according to a source familiar with the situation. Hickey is an insulin dependent diabetic.

Hickey, who was a member of the White Sox’s 1983 AL West Division title team, has worked for the club in pre-game drills for the past 10 years.
