New Orioles Hall of Famer Rich Dauer had to take time off from his job as third base coach for the Colorado Rockies to attend the Hall of Fame celebration this weekend at Camden Yards, but he wouldn¿t have missed it for the world.

Dauer played for the Baltimore Orioles from 1976-1985, winning a World Series with them in 1983. Dauer was hired by the Astros after the 2014 season.

Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow and manager A.J. Hinch say the team is supporting Dauer and his family throughout the recovery.
