CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The crack of bats could be heard Saturday morning at the Shawnee Sports Complex in Cape Girardeau for a softball tournament benefiting Burt Hahs, the victim of a bizarre crash.

Twenty-five teams took to the fields at $150 dollars a team.  All money raised at the tournament will go towards Hahs' medical expenses.

His family tells Heartland News that Hahs is getting better and is expected to get out of the St. John's Mercy Hospital in St. Louis next Saturday.

On August 6, 2012, 32-year-old Burt Hahs escaped a fiery car crash in front of the Cape Girardeau County Courthouse in Jackson, MO.

The driver of a truck reportedly was going between 80 to 90 mph and slammed into Hahs' truck twice.

The truck caught on fire, he was able to get out, but he suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns on 60 percent of his body.
