Engineering In The News
There have been some great first pitches over the years. This collection includes a well-thrown toss from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, a less-than-perfect throw from Chewbacca, acrobatic heaves from a Cirque de Solei performer and gymnast Simone Biles, and an impressive first-pitch fastball from Colin Kaepernick that was the fastest of the bunch. Some first pitches tug at your heartstrings and others, like Snoop Dogg, Carley Rae Jepsen, and 50 Cent, are frighteningly bad.
SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) - 8-year-old Hailey Dawson is a major baseball fan with lots of spunk and big dreams, who wins hearts wherever she goes. On Sunday, it was the San Francisco Giants and their fans who got to experience some of her exuberant energy when she threw out the first pitch at AT&T Park for the game against the Dodgers.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — There’s always a ceremonial first pitch before San Francisco Giants baseball games, but few have been as special as Sunday’s.
The San Francisco Giants added a special pitcher to their roster for the day. It was small -- yet fierce -- Hailey Dawson, who has a 3D-printed hand.
Last fall, we were introduced to Hailey Dawson because she had a dream. Despite being born without three fingers on her throwing hand, she set a goal to throw out a first pitch at every MLB stadium. With help from a prosthetic hand made with a 3D printer, Hailey even threw out the first pitch before Game 4 of the 2017 World Series.
