8-year-old with prosthetic hand throws out First Pitch at every MLB ballpark
8-year-old Hailey Dawson fulfilled her dream of throwing out the first pitch at every Major League Baseball ballpark.
Hailey was born with Poland Syndrome, which caused the fingers on her right hand to be underdeveloped. Faculty and students from the University of Nevada Las Vegas’ Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering have been working with her to design and print robotic hands to help her grab, grasp, and throw.
Last Sunday, Hailey completed her “Journey to 30” at Angels stadium.
