The former Hoover star, who suffered a major spinal cord injury in his collegiate debut for Harvard in September, returned home today after being discharged from the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.

"I can't wait to get inside," Abercrombie said, speaking to reporters in his driveway.

Many members of Hoover's baseball teams, some of whom began playing alongside Ben as elementary-school students, stood in the rain outside the family's home and welcomed Ben.

"He's been looking forward to this day for such a long time," added Marty Abercrombie, Ben's father.
