Child Throws Out First Pitch At Baltimore Orioles Game After Bilateral Hand Transplant (Video)

The Baltimore Orioles were able to defeat the Texas Rangers 5-1 last night, but the greatest storyline occurred during the ceremonial first pitch.

Meet Zion Harvey. A nine-year-old who became the youngest trooper to undergo a bilateral hand transplant.

While most individuals would have trouble pursuing everyday activities or merely accepting the new hand without rejection, Zion took it to pitching. Approximately one year after the operation, he tossed the first pitch at an O’s-Rangers game.

For those who believe setbacks are a direct stoppage of dream pursuits, take this as a prime example of the “never give up” mentality.
