Meet Landis Sims: A quad limb deficient teen baseball player
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Taikuli Productions and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) have created a documentary showcasing the inspiring true story of Landis Sims, a 16-year-old competitive baseball player born without hands and feet.
Landis: Just Watch Me is set to premiere on July 12, 2022 on Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and cable platforms in the US and Canada.
Set on achieving his goal of motivating other kids to “live without limits,” Landis launches the movie’s release with a nationwide Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium tour, which will include throwing out the first pitch for the Yankees, Padres (July 15), Giants and Astros games.
Throughout the film, Landis gains wisdom and inspiration from some of MLB’s best players, including San Diego Padres’ pitcher, Joe Musgrove.
“I feel like I could probably learn a little more from him than he can learn from me,” says Joe Musgrove, Padres’ pitcher. “I think you have to be able to put yourself out there and not be afraid to fail and be willing to get back up and try again. I mean, he’s done that his whole life.”
Musgrove has become a mentor to Landis, and they will reunite Friday at the Petco Park.
Landis Sims stopped by the KUSI News studio to share his incredible story on Good Morning San Diego.
