Hit one. . . or more like strike 30.

Tom Willis, who was born without arms, set a goal 15 years ago to hit the first field on all 30 baseball fields to raise awareness for his “No Arms, No Hands, No Problems” platform.

He began the journey in 2008 at Petco Park in San Diego, California, and concluded Thursday night at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado.

Willis walks to the center of the field before taking off his gray retractable sneakers and gripping the baseball with his toes.

Like a true pitcher, he lifted his free leg over his body before tossing the ball high into the air and straight into the mascot’s glove.
