Brian Hall has had a tough road since entering professional baseball having to battle through cancer and a load of injuries. In 2005 he had shoulder surgery and later that summer he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Last season Hall tore multiple ligaments in his wrists when he ran into the outfield wall in Auburn, and that play could be his last in professional baseball (and yes, he held on to the ball).

During the off-season Hall had surgery on both wrists and was expected to be out 6-8 weeks. His wrists continued to cause him problems as he tried to resume baseball activities this spring. A recent doctor's visit reveals surgery has to be done again, and it will likely signal the end of his professional career in baseball.

The 10th round pick in the 2004 draft by the Blue Jays batted .242 in just 18 games this season. The 24-year-old hit 10 home runs and drove in 39 runs, while hitting .294 during his first professional season – before he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and later having shoulder surgery.
