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 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.
