At a time when natural disasters and political acrimony are filling up the newscasts, here’s a nice story to remind us that there is still goodness in this godforsaken world.
Hailey Dawson was born without three fingers on her right hand. To compensate she has a 3D-printed hand. Which looks pretty boss, actually. It’s like she’s a good version of the Winter Soldier or something. Anyway, Dawson, a baseball player and fan, has already thrown out the first pitch at Orioles and Nationals games. Now she wants to do the same for the other 28 teams. Bleacher Report has given her campaign a boost with this:

Also responding: the Pirates, Mets, Royals, Phillies, Padres, Dbacks and Giants. There may be more, actually. I strongly suspect she’ll get her wish to do it at all 30 parks at some point.
See, we can have nice things sometimes.
