One-handed center gets D1 scholarship to Manhattan

NEW YORK -- A basketball player missing his left hand has received a scholarship to play for Division I Manhattan College next season.

Kevin Laue is a 6-foot-10 center whose left arm ends just past the elbow. A California native, he played a postgraduate season for Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia this year hoping to impress college coaches. Laue averaged about 10 points and five rebounds competing against many Division I prospects.

Laue says he was wondering whether he would realize his dream of playing Division I basketball before Manhattan contacted him just over a week ago. He signed with the team Wednesday.

Fork Union coach Fletcher Arritt said Laue's shot-blocking skills and ability to run the floor will make him an effective college player.

So if I believe in God, I could be the starting centerfielder for the White Sox tomorrow? Because that would fall under the umbrella of "anything," and I'd just love to be the missing piece for my favorite team.

Well, the biggest knock on me as a baseball player was my temper, so I guess it'd be a South Side version of Piniella and Bradley.
