Missouri boy back home to recover from baseball accident
Dawson Hirshey, of Diamond, suffered a brain bleed after he was hit by the ball during an April 13 at a Missouri Southern State University baseball game.
The Joplin Globe reports Dawson returned home last week after spending weeks at a Kansas City hospital. He wears a special hat to protect the spot where part of his skull was removed and walks with the help of a leg brace while continuing occupational and physical therapy.
Dawson will throw out the first pitch Friday at a Joplin Outlaws’ game at Joe Becker Stadium in Joplin.
