Inspiring doings in South Carolina, where 14-year-old Coleman Shannon is tearing up his youth baseball league. The Johnsonville teen was born with only one arm, but he hasn’t let that stop him from anything — he’s his team’s star pitcher, and threw a no-hitter last week. He also had two hits in the game.
In fact Coleman never considered his situation a disability. His mother tried to fit him with a prosthetic arm at age 2, but he refused to use it.
“I can say that probably 999 out of 1,000 that have a physical impairment like he does would have never even given themselves a chance and continued to go out there and play,” “But he’s that exception.”
