Barnett tells 105.3 The Fan that the preliminary diagnosis for what happened June 18 was a “complicated migraine” with a “complicated diagnosis.”READ MORE: US Supreme Court To Consider Controversial Texas Abortion Law
Barnett was calling the Rangers’ game against San Diego when he said a runner was on “fifth” base after a “botched robbery.” He then mentioned a “henchman” before the broadcast went silent for several seconds.
Barnett said Monday that he went to bed without knowing anything was wrong. The next morning, he says he got a call from his wife before seeing his call being discussed on national TV.READ MORE: Texas Mother And Son Arrested In Wyoming For Murder In Oklahoma
Barnett wanted to make sure all the fans knew that he was very thankful and appreciative of all the fans keeping him in their thoughts and prayers.
It’s not clear when Barnett will return to the air.
