Former All-Star pitcher Bobby Thigpen fell down stairs leaving Thursday night's Lightning-Capitals NHL game at St. Pete Times Forum, ending up in emergency surgery. The single-season saves leader (57 with the White Sox in 1990), Thigpen has been coaching a prep school and living in the area. "I'm not as flexible as I used to be, and I can't move as well," he told the paper last year. "But as long as I can stay active, I'll be here when I'm 59."
