    When the Arizona Diamondbacks reached the 34th round of baseball's draft, they didn't pick for need or take a chance on potential. In the case of the Arizona Diamondbacks and their 34th round selection Cory Hahn, we already know they hit a home run. 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. He was drafted in the 26th round by San Diego that year, but likely would have gone much higher had he not announced plans to play at Arizona State. When a player elects to go to college, that three year waiting period comes into play, so this is definitely the draft he would have been looking forward to as he continued to polish his skills.
