DENVER — Logan Howard was told he would never be able to play baseball again.
He disagreed. Tonight, Logan was honored at the 2021 MLB Draft as he inspired many after coming back to pitch for Rocky Mountain Lutheran high school.
Watch Logan's story above that dives into his day of celebration as he was the Commissioner's guest at the 2021 MLB Draft.
"My only goal was to play one high school baseball game," Rocky Mountain Lutheran's ace pitcher said.
Howard spent six weeks paralyzed in a hospital and 2 1/2 months in the hospital when he had his accident at age 13. He spent years regaining his strength in physical therapy before he could come back and play for his high school team at the age of 18.
