Girl with robotic hand will throw out first pitch during World Series

Los Angeles Times 

Hailey Dawson is 7 years old and has already thrown out the first pitch before many Major League Baseball games. This fall, she'll get to do it again -- and this time before one of the biggest games of all. Dawson was born with Poland syndrome and is missing three fingers on her right hand, which is also her throwing hand. By using a robotic hand made with a 3-D printer, she has thrown out the ceremonial first pitch for several MLB teams, including the Washington Nationals, Baltimore Orioles, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, Oakland A's, Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers. Her goal is to throw out a pitch at every MLB stadium -- and that got the attention of folks in the league office, who decided to bestow a big honor on the little girl.
