(RNN) – Hailey Dawson, 7, has her sights set on throwing out the first pitch at all 30 Major League ballparks, and she’s well on her way.
Hailey was born with a rare disease that caused the fingers on her right hand not to form fully, but thanks to 3-D technology, she has a mechanical hand. She’s a huge baseball fan, and one of the first things she learned to do with her new hand was to grip and throw a baseball.
She’s already thrown out first pitches for the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals – and after a Bleacher Report video has gone viral, she’s gotten invitations from 16 other Major League teams, with more certainly to come.
You're an inspiration, kiddo!
