Four days later, Hartzfeld, then 17, woke up in the ICU and later underwent a 11-hour surgery to repair his facial bones with titanium plates. Hartzfeld walked out of the hospital 19 days later wearing his team’s baseball cap, and determined to go back to school and his sport. He was back in class less than a month after the accident, with his jaw wired shut, wearing a tracheotomy tube and a gastrostomy tube. Originally, they said I would probably never play baseball again, but I decided that was wrong. I wanted to play. Hartzfeld, a shortstop and pitcher, is now playing summer baseball, and the college scouts have started coming around again. This chapter of my life is now over, and I can only look ahead.
