Hall recovering after successful prostate surgery

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

Arizona Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall has undergone successful surgery to remove his prostate and doctors found that his cancer had not spread to other areas.

The team said on Tuesday that Hall is expected to recover fully and hopes to be back at work at Chase Field in the near future.

The 42-year-old Hall disclosed in late September that a prostate biopsy had revealed cancerous tumors, but it had been caught in the early stages of the disease.

Hall became the Diamondbacks' president in September 2006 and added CEO to his title in January 2009. He previously worked for parts of 12 seasons in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.
