MLB.com reporter, Alyson Footer posted an updated story of Legends catcher, Max Sapp, who has been battling viral meningitis..Check that below as well:
 

Sapp Max_4399.jpgHOUSTON — Catching prospect Max Sapp, hospitalized for nearly a month with viral meningitis, was discharged and returned home Friday.

“He’s very glad to be back home,” said his agent, Doug Rogalski, in an e-mail Friday afternoon.

The 20-year-old Sapp had been hospitalized since Dec. 11, when he was taken to an Orlando-area emergency room following an apparent seizure after completing his early afternoon workout.

Sapp was diagnosed with viral meningitis and chronic sinus disease. Doctors determined that the sinus condition led to an abnormal susceptibility to the meningitis virus.

Sapp’s course of treatment included heavy doses of antibiotics to treat the meningitis and pneumonia, and included a surgical procedure to rectify his sinus issues on Dec. 14.

Sapp required the use of a respirator for more than two weeks after suffering three episodes where he stopped breathing.   

Alright, Legends Fans…that’s about it on yet another successful edition of Diggin’ In to the Legends…be sure to keep your webpage locked into minor league baseball’s HOTTEST blog!

until next time,

keep it SUPER fans!
