Orioles legend Jim Palmer is out of the MASN broadcast booth while dealing with myelitis, inflammation of the spinal cord that Palmer tweeted was caused by shingles.
The 73-year-old Palmer is the winningest pitcher in Orioles history and a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He credited the Orioles’ team trainers and doctors for suggesting he get an MRI, which revealed the infection.
I’m out of the booth due to a rare infection in my spinal column caused by the Shingles virus. VERY thankful for O’s team docs and trainers who told me to get an MRI ASAP...showed Myelitis. I’m still watching O’s and tweeting with you!!!! #shinglesnightmare@masnOrioles@Orioles
