FRANK F RANK P PRUETTE, RUETTE, fformer ormer Chicago Chicago Cubs Cubs pitcher pitcher The only thing to ever slow down former Chicago Cubs pitcher Frank Pruette was a heart attack. After passing out at church, the 73-year old Rock Hill native was taken to Piedmont Medical Center’s ER – he was experiencing a STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction), the most dangerous type of heart attack. Frank was rushed to the catheterization lab where a cardiologist on Piedmont’s specialized STEMI Cardiac Team placed a stent and opened the blockage from one of his main arteries. Two weeks later, Frank was back with his team pitching curve balls in Cherry Park. To read more about other survivor stories and to learn about www.pmc heart.com.
