Lifelong baseball fan Tom Willis was born without arms, but that hasn't stopped him from throwing out first pitches in ballparks around the country.

Willis has learned to do things, such as throwing a baseball, with his feet.

On Thursday, Willis threw out the first pitch at the Minnesota Twins-Kansas City Royals game. It's remarkable to see how easy he makes pitching out of the windup look.

According to the broadcast, Willis has thrown out a first pitch at 22 different ballparks as part of his Pitch for Awareness tour.
