Warriors Can Do!

At Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday, a triple amputee veteran not only threw out the ceremonial first pitch, he also stunned onlookers when he pitched a strike.

As Business Insider notes, Marine Cpl. Nicholas Kimmel, who lost both legs and one of his arms during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, threw the impressive strike before the second Giants-Tigers game in San Francisco.

Kimmel, who was at the game as part of Major League Baseball's Welcome Back Veterans program, told USA Today that the whole experience had been "like a dream."


  1. Here is your poster child for your "what makes you a man article"....

    After overcoming such adversity on the battlefield and beyond, he throws strikes metephorically as well as literally.

  2. Spot on. I could have stated that better myself.

  3. Off topic....How did you fare during Hurricane Sandy?

  4. AoW - Not too bad. Didn't lose power, but my sump pump stopped working. So I stayed up all night hand pumping water.

    Small potatoes compared to what a lot of others are going through.
