7-year-old Hailey Dawson currently has standing invitations from 28 MLB teams to throw out a first pitch at their parks. The other two teams, Orioles, and Nationals, have already welcomed Hailey and had her throw out a pitch.

Dawson isn’t just a precocious kid who loves baseball, though. She was born with Poland Syndrome. Due to Poland Syndrome, Dawson only has three fingers on one hand.

A team at UNLV Engineering built her a 3D-printed hand, so she can now throw a baseball as well as more easily do everyday tasks that would have otherwise been more difficult.

She has a few different types of hands she can wear, including one dedicated to pitching completely.

Now, Hailey got to check third team off of her list, and on a massive stage as well. The Houston Astros welcomed the young fan to the park to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Game 4 of the World Series.
