This Man With No Arms Just Threw An Awesome First Pitch

Tom Willis was born without arms, but that hasn't stopped him from learning how to cook, drive, write… and throw a ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game.

On Thursday night, Willis, who was born with congenital bilateral upper amputation, wowed the crowd at a Kansas City Royals game when he threw out the first pitch -- with his feet.

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

For years, Willis, a motivational speaker, has been touring the country throwing first pitches at Major League Baseball games as part of his Pitch for Awareness campaign.

Willis says he hopes to eventually make it to all 30 MLB stadiums. (He's made it to 22 so far.)

"I might not make it to 30, but I’ll have fun trying," he told the Washington Post in 2012 of the campaign. "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."
