    If OSU baseball matters to anyone...

    Pitcher Rob Summers a victim of hit and run outside his apartment. Was paralyzed for a time, but is slowly regaining feeling in his lower extremeties. Last update I got was that he does have slight movement in his legs, which is apparently a good sign.


    Full disclosure: The kid is my wife's cousin.

    Hey, Hustle, I just saw the thread title and didn't read your post before posting my attempt at humor. My apologies, and the post has been deleted. Hope he's OK and I wish him luck and a speedy recovery.

    Again, sorry for being insensitive.

    So what's the word on the accident Hustle? Story makes it seem like there may not have been a hit and run.

    Joe...no worries, it's all good.

    Ace: I read the story to mean that there wasn't enough evidence to justify a further investigation. From what I know, he was walking out to his car, talking on his phone and the next thing he knew he was on the ground.

    From what I know, there was definitely a hit and run. But it was pretty late at night, so there probably weren't a lot of witnesses etc. Something bad clearly happened, though.

    Glad he's doing better.

    Saying there was no evidence a crime was committed seems kind of harsh. If you have a guy who says he was hit by a car and the car is long gone, seems like that's enough evidence that there likely was a hit-and-run. Maybe not enough evidence to catch anytone, though.
