Hall of Famer Catfish Hunter is back at his Perquimans County, N.C. farm following his release from a hospital, four weeks after a fall on concrete steps.
The 53-year-old Hunter, who has Lou Gehrig's disease, was released Saturday from Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville after he recovered faster than doctors anticipated, said the Rev. Keith Vaughan, a family spokesman.
Hunter hit his head on the steps at his home on Aug. 8. Hunter was unconscious for several days at the hospital and gradually improved from critical condition to fair, which was his condition when he was released.
