Mets great Ed Kranepool has reportedly found a kidney donor.
Kranepool, 74, had been searching for a donor for two years. He told Newsday on Monday he is set to undergo a transplant in early May at Stony Brook University Hospital. The Mets are expected to make an official announcement before Monday night's game against the Phillies.
"I'm nervous, but also ecstatic," Kranepool, who has lived with diabetes for much of his life, told Newsday. "It’s very exhilarating, no question about it. It's life-saving. But I am nervous. It's a 3½-hour operation."
