Man born without arms throws first pitch

How many people can say they're spreading awareness of a cause, one professional baseball stadium at a time?

Tom Willis can, and he's almost checked them all off.

Tom Willis, who was born without arms, is working to visit every Major League Baseball stadium during his Pitch for Awareness tour. His latest stop was the Kansas City Royals Thursday night. This was his 22nd ballpark since he started touring in 2008, and he only has eight to go. The purpose of the tour, according to Willis' website, is to "pitch his message of the awareness of the ABILITIES of persons with disabilities."

And with all that practice, it's no wonder his skill with this ability is so phenomenal. Watch as he winds up and sends the ball soaring over home plate, all with his feet.
