Several years ago there was a baseball player from Kansas State who was assaulted or beat up when he was playing baseball in Ohio and I think he was originally from Lawrence. What ever happened to him? Did he recover?

Brad Harker, a 1993 Lawrence High graduate, was playing in a wood-bat baseball league in Columbus, Ohio, after his sophomore year at Kansas State. On July 16, 1995, Harker was in bed when someone attacked him viciously. He underwent extensive facial surgery. He lost the sight in his right eye and metal plates hold parts of his face intact. Harker graduated from Kansas University in 1999 and is now working as a paraprofessional at South Junior High School. His attacker has never been identified.
