Dave Stewart’s weeklong staredown with a sickness his family believed to be coronavirus is over. Final score from his San Diego-area home: Oakland A’s World Series hero 1, COVID-19 0.
After spending seven days in self-isolation, bed-ridden and sick with coronavirus-like symptoms, the former A’s star pitcher announced Tuesday afternoon he does not have the virus.
The 63-year-old Stewart, who was the World Series MVP when the A’s last won a world championship 31 years ago, tweeted his gratitude that his coronavirus test finally came back negative.
