#WorldSeries: Hailey Dawson, With 3D-Printed Hand, Throws First Pitch For Game 4 [VIDEO]

There are still good and wonderful things in this world. Like baseball, and girls who just want to throw a ball.

And there are imaginative and clever and determined people in the world, who help girls throw a ball even when she’s missing three fingers on her right hand.

This is Hailey Dawson, and she was born with Poland Syndrome. Engineers at UNLV created a 3D printed hand for her, which means this huge baseball fan can now throw a ball.

Hailey Dawson, age 7
She threw out the opening pitch at a Baltimore Orioles game in 2015.


But that wasn’t enough.



And once Bleacher Report picked up the story, Major League Baseball responded.


Hailey threw out the first pitch at a Washington Nationals game this season.

And now…. she gets to throw the first pitch at tonight’s World Series game!


Complete with brand-new hand.


Baseball is wonderful.


Don’t forget the engineering students who made this possible.


And Hailey isn’t done yet.


You go, Hailey!
UPDATE 5:35 PM PDT
And here it is!


Play ball!
