Your feel good video of the year – 8 year old one legged baseball player
Ok so this is kind of nuts. I just found this video of an 8 year old kid from Kentucky named Adam Bender. He is a little league catcher who plays with one leg and he’s still better than you.
Bender squats on his one leg while catching, stands on one leg while bats and hops to first base after a hit. He had to have his leg amputated when he was one but he’s not letting that stop him from playing the sport he loves.
This is a great video but whats up with that guy that knocks him down when he is coming into home to try and score the run. Thats nothing new in baseball but he has ONE LEG. Thats like pushing someone in a wheel chair out of it or making fun of retarded people.
Anyway, heres an excerpt from the Lexington Herald Leader:
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.
If this isn’t motivation enough for you to get your ass up and do some kind of exercise, I don’t know what is.
