Cory Hahn FundA 2010 graduate of Mater Dei High School, Cory earned four varsity letters and served as team captain in 2010. In his high school career, Cory earned First Team All-League & First Team All-State, Trinity League MVP honors, 2010 Orange County Player of the Year, CIF Player of the Year, Max Preps State Player of the Year and was named California's Mr. Baseball. Cory was on top of his game.
Following high school, Cory was drafted by the San Diego Padres, but decided to attend Arizona State University. After only the second day of his college baseball career, Cory's life changed dramatically. In the first inning of the second game of the day, he went to steal second base. Sliding head first colliding with the second baseman, Cory suffered a C-5 fracture of his spinal cord, ultimately leaving him paralyzed from the chest down.
Like the way he excelled in baseball, he has kept an amazing attitude.
Cory now spends his time doing outpatient rehab and is taking one day at a time. This hasn't just changed Cory's life. With the mounting bills and all the time it takes to care for him, Cory's father, Dale, has retired from his job to be his son's full-time caregiver. So, with all this in mind, we are asking for those who can, to help raise money for this deserving family.
Cory's injury has brought a tremendous outpouring of support from many communities including ASU, Major League Baseball, the Trinity League Schools and of course the Mater Dei family.
Among those in support of Cory's ongoing recovery is Trinity Bats, who will donate 15% of the proceeds to Cory's Fund at Mater Dei for each model of the "Pro Model Hahn" bat sold. To purchase a bat, visit http://trinitybats.mybigcommerce.com/hahn/ or click on the image below.
