Arizona State Baseball player fractures spine stealing base

Hahn trying to slide/Courtresy: Ron Galosic-LATimes

This sounds rough. Arizona State freshman outfielder and pitcher Cory Hahn badly injured himself on Sunday in a game against New Mexico.

He apparently tried to slide head first while trying to steal second base in the 1st inning of the game. He hit the knee of the New Mexico second baseman, which appeared to knock him out. He was taken off the the field on a stretcher to a local hospital.

The updated report on Hahn, according to College Baseball Daily, a C-5 fracture of the Spinal cord. He'll be in ICU at the Hospital for at least a week.

Hahn, a highly recruited athlete from the Los Angeles area faces a really uncertain future. The injury is not something easily recovered from. According to the report, it's similar to the injury suffered by Boston University hockey player Travis Roy a few years ago. We wish him the best in his recovery.
