Amoros remains in hospital


MIAMI (AP) -- Sandy Amoros, hero of the Brooklyn Dodgers 1955 World Series victory, remained hospitalized in critical condition with pneumonia, a hospital spokeswoman said today.

Amoros had been listed in serious condition Wednesday and was thought to be improving until early yesterday.

The Brooklyn Sports Foundation had planned to honor the 62-year-old Amoros in New York this weekend for his seventh-game catch that saved the 1955 Series for the Dodgers against the New York Yankees.
