SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- A college baseball player from South Dakota whose prosthetic arm was stolen was fitted with a new replacement limb at a Minneapolis-area hospital.

Augustana’s Parker Hanson also presented the Shriners Children’s Twin Cities hospital with a $7,000 check Friday from donations he received while his prosthetic was missing. The hospital gave him a free replacement.

Hanson, a right-handed pitcher, was born without a left hand but found a way to adapt so he could play his favorite game. His prosthetic arm was stolen from his unlocked pickup last month.

The damaged prosthetic was later recovered at a recycling center in Sioux Falls.
