Giants great Orlando Cepeda in critical condition

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.
