American Pickers dominated The History Channel for years as Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe traveled the world and tried to buy things out of strangers’ backyards. Now there is sad news to deliver concerning one of the show’s stars.

Fritz was hospitalized after a stroke, according to TMZ. Sadly, things don’t sound too good for him right now, as they are asking for as many good vibes that fans can send their way.

Frank’s condition doesn’t sound too promising, with his former History channel show co-star, Mike Wolfe, asking for thoughts and prayers.

Mike Wolfe got on Instagram and shared an update on Frank. He also addressed their falling out that led to the end of American Pickers.

I have been very private in the past year in regards to Franks life and the journey he’s been on. There has been lots of opinions in regards to mine and Frank’s friendship and the show but now is not the time to set the record straight. Now is the time to pray for my friend.

Frank has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your hearts and thoughts.

Frank I pray more than anything that you make it through this okay. I love you buddy.

We are sending out or best to Frank Fritz. Hopefully, he will be able to kick out of this and live to pick another day.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
