Former Reds owner Marge Schott was hospitalized Wednesday. The 74-year-old Schott, who still has a minority stake in the team, was suffering from pneumonia when she was admitted to Christ Hospital, said her spokesman, Arnold Barnett.
A hospital spokeswoman confirmed that Schott was a patient but declined to release any other information.
Schott has been a patient in Cincinnati hospitals several times in recent years. She was hospitalized twice in 2001 after complaining of breathing problems and once in 1999 for allergies. She underwent surgery in 1998 after falling in her driveway and breaking her hip.
