After hearing the good news that Andy Lopez’s triple-bypass surgery went well Monday, I offered to fans to write a “Get Well” message to the Arizona baseball coach in this space. I will Tweet this post to Lopez’s Twitter account (@CoachAndyLopez), where he should be able to read the comments.

Bobby Fisher: “Get well soon! Wish you all the best.”

Eddie Emerine: “Coach Lopez, All of the Wildcat Nation is praying for a speedy recovery. Look forward to seeing you at Hi Corbett soon.”

Susan Sloan: “Get strong and stay strong Coach!”
