The No Arm Pitcher

If you think that all you need to pitch a baseball are an arm and a ball, you'd be half-right. As Tom Willis proved, you actually don't need any arm:

He's Tom Willis, and he's a San Diego-based motivational speaker who has made it his goal to throw out the first ball at every major league baseball stadium.

So far, he's up to nine -- including eight this year -- and will add No. 10 to his resume when he throws the first pitch for the Texas Rangers on Sept. 30.

What makes Willis extraordinary? He doesn't have any arms, just a small left hand with two fingers that aren't very strong.

Holy crap, this guy is AMAZING!!! But, how does he do it?! If he only has a small left hand, how does he hold the ball at all?! What an inspiration. MLB should really step it up here and help this guy out!
