Manuel, who is 79-years-old, last managed in Major League Baseball in 2013, although did serve as a coach for the Phillies in 2019.

The team announced on Saturday that Manuel had suffered a stroke during a medical procedure in Florida.

“The Phillies have been informed that while undergoing a medical procedure today in a Florida hospital, Charlie Manuel suffered a stroke,” the official team X account posted. “The hospital was able to attend to Charlie immediately and subsequently remove a blood clot.

Charlie Manuel Still A Legend In Philadelphia

Manuel was the manager for the Phillies’ 2008 World Series winning team featuring Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins, among other stars.

He led the team to the 2009 National League pennant as well, before losing to the New York Yankees in the World Series.

The team also won the NL East every year from 2007-2011, with the organization adding him to their “wall of fame” in the 2014 season.

Hopefully Manuel makes a full recovery.
