Tito arrived at the stadium at approximately at eight AM and felt stiffness in his chest according to Theo Epstein.

    "He was taken to the hospital for precautionary tests," Epstein said. "He had all his faculties about him, he was just going for tests."

    Theo and Brad Mills, Tito's bench coach, emphasized that the trip to the hospital was strictly precautionary and the Yankees were kind enough to expedite the trip with use of their ambulance.
