Second chance comes 40 years after the firstAt 58, pitcher Larry Hasenfus had almost four decades on his Springfield College teammates. He was their age when his promising baseball career came to a demoralizing end, cut short by an undiagnosed learning disability that left him barely able to read. But now he was back in college, diagnosed late in life with a severe form of dyslexia. And, somehow, he was back on the baseball diamond, driven to make good on a second chance.
