Tom Willis, who was born without arms, threw out the ceremonial first pitch with his foot at the Baltimore Orioles game. If you’re looking for a little strength, a little determination, a little pick-me-up, this should do it:

More from the Baltimore Sun:

Camden Yards was the 20th major league stop on Willis’s “Pitch for Awareness” national tour, which he hopes will highlight the abilities of people with disabilities.

“The main message,” he says, “is that I may look different. I may act differently. But it’s OK to be different.”

After a long career as a video producer, Arbitron executive and communications specialist with the federal government, the 54-year-old Willis makes his living as a motivational speaker these days.

Awesome. Go get ’em, Willis.
