Mark Trumbo, Hank Conger to participate in benefit for Cory Hahn
Angels first baseman Mark Trumbo and catcher Hank Conger will be among a group of current and former big league players who will compete or participate in the Trinity Bat Co.'s first home run challenge, a charity event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at El Dorado High School in Placentia.
Trumbo is recovering from a stress fracture in his right foot and will not take part in the home run derby portion of the event, but Conger will be joined by Mike Carp of the Seattle Mariners and Danny Espinosa of the Washington Nationals. There will also be competitions for high school and college players and an open division for all adults.
Former Angels infielder and television broadcaster Rex Hudler will broadcast his live radio show from the event, which will also feature raffles and sports memorabilia auctions.
Proceeds will be donated to the Cory Hahn Fund. Hahn is a former Santa Ana Mater Dei High School pitcher/outfielder who remains partially paralyzed after suffering a serious neck injury while playing for Arizona State last February. The fund was established to help pay for his care.
