San Francisco Giants hall of famer Orland Cepeda sits in the dugout before the St. Louis Cardinals face the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Calif., on Wednesday, September 15, 2016.

Giants Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda was admitted to a Bay Area hospital Monday night after what is being described as a cardiac incident.

Cepeda remains in critical condition as of Wednesday morning, and sources say Cepeda is not breathing on his own.

In a statement Wednesday morning, the Giants said:

“The Cepeda family asks for privacy during this time.  Please keep Orlando and his family in your thoughts and prayers. “

According to SF Gate, a friend of Cepeda’s,  Francisco Figueroa, was quoted in a Puerto Rican newspaper saying the former Giant suffered a head injury after a fall at Rancho Solano Golf Course complex, where Cepeda is a member.

According to the Fairfield Fire Department, units were dispatched to that location at 6:04 p.m. Monday night where a patient was picked up and transported to a local hospital.
