Boston Red Sox fans can breathe a sigh of relief for John Valentin.
The former Red Sox infielder and his mother were injured Thursday when the car he was driving crashed into a vacant building in Red Bank, N.J., according to The Associated Press. Red Bank Police Chief Darren McConnell said their injuries aren’t life-threatening and the ex-Major League Baseball player might have suffered a medical problem prior to the crash.
Valentin, 50, played for the Red Sox from 1992 to 2001. He joined the New York Mets in 2002 and retired after the season.
