Boy with amputation plays baseball :)

This story is making the rounds in rehab circles 🙂 Includes video.

“Adam Bender, 8, is one of several kids who plays catcher in
Southeastern’s rookie league at Veterans Park. What makes Adam stand
out is that he plays one of the toughest positions on the field with
only one leg. Because of cancer, he had his left leg amputated when he
was one. Adam doesn’t use a prosthesis, and only uses crutches when he
reaches base for the Astros.”
