Stephan Hagins, a freshman catcher from Irvine's University High who has a heart-valve problem, filed suit Monday against Arizona State about its refusal to let him play. Hagins, a Times' All-County selection last season, alleges the school is guilty of handicap discrimination. Arizona State recruited Hagins with full knowledge of his condition, and he has offered to sign waivers excluding the university and team doctors from legal liability if he's allowed to play, the suit said.

Stephan Hagins has known his share of despair--when his father died, when doctors told him a valve in his heart was 89% blocked, when they told him after surgery he should never play baseball again, when school lawyers blocked his admission at Arizona State--but he was experiencing a new kind of emptiness last month as he drove down the freeway toward his apartment in San Diego.

A settlement of Stephan Hagins' lawsuit against Arizona State has been delayed, at least until Monday. Hagins, a standout catcher from University High, sued Arizona State last week over the school's refusal to allow him to play because of a heart-valve condition, but he's expected to drop the suit in exchange for his release from a letter of intent. "We should have everything inked Monday," said Joe Rocco, Hagins' Phoenix attorney.

Former University High School baseball standout Stephan Hagins was released Monday from his letter of intent with Arizona State as part of an out-of-court settlement of Hagins' lawsuit against the university. In exchange, Hagins dropped his Nov. 29 suit, which claimed ASU's refusal to allow him to play because of a heart-valve condition constitutes handicap discrimination that is illegal under the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Stephan Hagins, University High School's catcher, doesn't listen to the talk. Talk's cheap. So Baseball America thinks he's the 17th best high school prospect in the nation? Who cares that USA Today considers him among the 25 best in the USA? So what if every college coach and professional scout has been falling all over themselves to get a moment of his time? Hagins has more important things to worry about. "I can't let this be an ego thing," Hagins said.

Stephan Hagins knows that what happened to Hank Gathers, to Earnest Killum, to Reggie Lewis, could happen to him. He knows playing competitive sports with a heart valve defect could kill him. "This might sound crazy, but I'm willing to go out that way," Hagins said. Arizona State University is not willing to give him that chance, though.
