Last week, the world learned about seven-year old Hailey Dawson and her 3D printed hand. She was born with a rare disease called Poland Syndrome and is missing the three middle fingers on her right hand. She hasn’t let that stop her, however.
Hailey had a dream of throwing out the first pitch at all 30 MLB ballparks. She already had Nationals Park and Oriole Park at Camden Yards under her belt but once word got out, all of the other teams jumped at the chance to offer Hailey a pitch.
Sounds great! Can you DM us Hailey's info, so we can reach out?

Now comes word that Hailey will also throw the first pitch at Game 4 of the World Series, according to Sport Techie.
Hailey’s mom, Yong Dawson, says she hopes Hailey continues to get offers to throw out first pitches as much as possible between now and then so she can build up her confidence and inspire other children dealing with adversity. Dawson also said that Hailey has gotten the chance to meet some of her favorite players, such as Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper.
