Man With No Arms Throws First Pitch

Tom Willis First Pitch

It’s pretty typical to invite someone to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game. I guess that’s what makes it so “ceremonial,” right? Most times, the person pitching uses their arms. Not in this case. 

Tom Willis was born with no arms but has been determined to live life as normally as possible.

Last  night, Tom was asked to throw the first pitch at a Kansas City Royals game. He gripped the ball between his toes and went for it!

Pretty amazing and better than most we’ve seen this season,” MLB.com said of Willis’ toss.

 

The reason for all of this? It’s Tom’s Pitch for Awareness campaign saying, “My goal is to help people understand that when you look at a person who has a disability, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have a whole heck of a lot of abilities, including some that you can’t even imagine.”

Tom Willis hopes to visit all 30 MLB stadiums.
