TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - When Cory Hahn was paralyzed on a headfirst dive on the baseball field, his days of playing baseball were over.

His involvement in the game isn't.

Hahn is graduating from Arizona State Wednesday and already has a job waiting for him - with the Diamondbacks.

The starting centerfielder for the Sun Devils as a freshman, Hahn saw his baseball career end in 2011, when he slid headfirst into the second baseman's knee and fractured his C5 vertebrae.

Instead of looking at the injury as something devastating, he viewed it as another challenge and went right back to work. He got his business degree, and now will work for the team in the scouting department.
