    Arizona Diamondbacks...good guys of the day...

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/draft/2013/st...yer-34th-round

    I absolutely LOVE seeing things like this.

    PHOENIX -- When the Arizona Diamondbacks reached the 34th round of baseball's draft, they didn't pick for need or take a chance on potential.Instead, they made a gesture to a player whose career was cut short.
    Bypassing conventional wisdom in the draft, the Diamondbacks used the 1,020th overall pick of the draft on Arizona State's Cory Hahn, an outfielder who was partially paralyzed during a game in 2011
    Chapman to the rotation!!!! Do it already!!!!

    Not only is a great gesture by the Diamondbacks to draft him but they are going to find a job for him to make him a full time employee of the organization.

    The jaded part of me wonders why Jeffrey Loria didn't attempt this as a goodwill PR move.

    The Celtics did this to paralyzed IU basketball player Landon Turner in the early 80's.
