Newcombe released from hospital after collapse

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers executive Don Newcombe was resting comfortably at home Tuesday afternoon after collapsing at Dodger Stadium in the morning, according to the club.

The 89-year-old Newcombe, the club's special advisor to the chairman, took ill after a news conference introducing Dave Roberts as the first minority manager in club history. Newcombe also was hospitalized earlier this season when he collapsed before a game.

Newcombe was conscious and speaking when paramedics arrived Tuesday and was taken to a local hospital before being released.
