Yost was working on tree stand used for hunting

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost sustained a broken pelvis after a fall from a tree on his property at his Georgia home, a team official said.

Yost, 63, had been working on a tree stand used for hunting before he fell over the weekend.

The Royals said that Yost is resting comfortably in an Atlanta hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Yost has managed the Royals the past eight seasons, with a World Series title in 2015 and two American League pennants highlighting that stretch.

He previously managed the Milwaukee Brewers from 2003-2008.
