Arizona State freshman outfielder Cory Hahn is "slowly recovering" from neck surgery after a scary collision Sunday against New Mexico.
Hahn slid head-first into second base on a stolen base attempt in the first inning and left the game on a stretcher. He was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix, where he had surgery later Sunday.
Arizona State issued this statement Monday:
"The university is working closely with the Hahn family regarding any official updates regarding the health of Cory Hahn, who sustained an injury in yesterday's baseball game.
"The family would like Sun Devil fans to know that Cory has sustained a neck injury, that he underwent surgery last night and that he is slowly recovering.
"The family welcomes all wishes and positive thoughts from everyone at this time."
Hahn was named Mr. Baseball in California after hitting .411 and going 14-1 on the mound for Mater Dei High in Santa Ana. He is a dynamic two-way talent who earned high praise from rival recruiting coordinators during Baseball America's recruiting survey this fall.
"Cory Hahn is a great player—my No. 1 favorite player in the 2010 class," said one.
"Cory Hahn had probably the best year of any player in Southern California last year," said another. "He did an unbelievable job for them on the mound, but I still think he's a prototypical center fielder. He can really get the ball—great instincts. He's an offensive player, he can run—very good player."
