Three-time Super Bowl Champion John Banaszak, recently hospitalized and placed in intensive care, has a benign hemorrhage near his brain that is expected to have no long-term effects, according to an Allegheny General Hospital official:

Dr. Khaled Aziz, a neurosurgeon, said the preliminary diagnosis for Mr. Banaszak is that he has a nonaneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, which can occur from the burst of a small artery around the brain. Patients typically make full recovery from that condition, he said, and MRI and CT tests checking for more serious problems such as aneurysms have been negative.

A report in Washington's Observer-Reporter credits Washington Wild Things manager Mark Mason with getting Banaszak to the hospital after he fell ill at Strabane Township's Cameron Wellness Center. Mason was Banaszak's pitching coach during his tenure as Washington and Jefferson's head baseball coach. Mason's seen a lot of saves in his career, but this was probably the biggest he'll ever be a part of.
