Mechanical Engineering In The News
An inspiring journey that began more than three years ago was completed at Angel Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as 8-year-old Hailey Dawson achieved her quest to become the first person to throw out the first pitch at all 30 Major League ballparks.
A year ago, the world met Hailey Dawson, a young girl who has a 3D-printed right hand. Hailey loves baseball, and back then, she said her goal was to throw out a first pitch — with her 3D-printed hand, of course — at every major league ballpark. And just over 12 months later, the 8-year-old accomplished her inspiring “Journey to 30” when she threw out a first pitch at her 30th and final MLB park on Sunday.
Hailey Dawson, 8 years old, for the 30th first pitch!
An inspiring 8-year-old with a 3-D-printed prosthetic hand has achieved her personal goal to throw out the first pitch at every major league ballpark.
Hailey Dawson likes to be photographed with her 3D-printed hand front and center. Sometimes she curls it into a fist and flexes her biceps. Other times she keeps it flat as a pancake, elbow bent into a classic dab.
