Paralyzed WSU baseball star’s home gets ‘Extreme Makeover’

April 15, 2011


— Former Wichita State baseball star Carl Hall has a new home that will be unveiled Sunday on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Hall starred on some of the strongest Shocker baseball teams in school history and was the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year in 1994. He was paralyzed from the neck down after a traffic crash in June.

He, his wife and four children had to move out of their house in west Wichita because it wasn't suitable for a wheelchair. The family has been living in a rented two-bedroom duplex with a converted garage before the makeover.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Hall says he's trying to figure out all the gadgets in the new home.
