Man With No Arms Throws Out First Pitch

Man With No Arms Throws Out First Pitch

The biggest highlight of the Detroit Tigers' 8-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday night at US Cellular Field occurred before the game even started. The biggest highlight of the night was the ceremonial first pitch by Tom Willis. (No, it wasn't the guy who played Tom Willis on 'The Jeffersons.')

Willis was born with no arms, but he learned how to do everything with his feet. He is involved in the Pitch for Awareness Tour as he has begun a quest to throw out the first pitch at every major league park. The goal of the tour is to show others that people with disabilities actually have abilities.

The amazing part of the first pitch is that he one-hopped it to home plate by throwing the ball from the pitching rubber on the mound with his foot. Some wimps that throw out the first pitch don't even have the strength to throw it to home plate.
