On September 4, 1993, New York Yankees pitcher Jim Abbott pitched a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians in Yankees Stadium that will go down as one of the most inspirational moments in baseball history. 

Abbott's career is an incredible one, and this no-hitter achieved 20 years ago today was his single greatest professional game. As if a no-hitter in a professional game wasn't impressive enough, Abbott also achieved this feat at a major physical disadvantage: Jim Abbot was born without a right hand. 

Thanks to the Yankees' Tumblr for the GIF.
