    Baseball legend Rusty Staub is recovering in an Ireland hospital after suffering a heart attack on a flight back to New York this week. 

    According to multiple reports, Staub was traveling back on Monday when the incident occurred. Two doctors on board were able to revive Staub and keep him stable until the plane could return to Ireland. Staub was taken into emergency surgery and is now recovering, but many of his friends and fans have been working to get Staub back home so his recovery can continue at home.  

    According to the New York Daily News, a man named Stephen Marro, who says he’s a friend of the Staub family started a GoFundMe page with the goal to raise the $60,000 for a medical plane to bring Staub home. As of this writing, the campaign was closing in on $4,000.
