Baseball is a game that is full of blood, sweat, and tears.
But it’s also a game that can be full of inspiration.
Many inspiring moments take place on and off the field each day, whether it be for MLB players, coaches, executives, umpires, stadium personnel, or fans.
There’s a certain baseball fanatic though that might just catch your eye.
Tom Willis is a lifelong baseball fan who was born without arms.
That did not stop him from achieving his dream of tossing the first pitch at every MLB ballpark.
The way he does it is pretty insane too.
He starts with the ball on the ground and takes off his shoes before putting the ball between his toes.
He then goes into the windup with his legs and kicks the ball into the air, and he gets it to home plate every time.
