Baseball fans, meet young Dawson Batts, who plays our baseball and plays it well despite not having a left arm ...

That's outstanding. Not a bad breaking ball, and a very nice low-to-high swing from the left side.

The North Carolina native was born without a left arm, and as you can see he's adapted quite nicely to a limitation that would probably keep the rest of us on the sofa. As this MLB.com piece notes, Batts was considered the top player on his tournament team, and he also turned a pair of unassisted triple plays during the season.

Dawson Batts, you see, is a baseball player.
