Adam Bender hustles down the line.

Adam Bender hustles down the line.

Back in August I wrote a post on a group of blind baseball players, calling them “the most impressive and gutsy baseball players” I had ever seen.

I stand corrected.

Check out this segment from the Today Show about nine year old Adam Bender.

Adam plays little league baseball, soccer and probably any sport he wants — all on one leg.

And he’s good! How many two-legged nine year olds can get around the basepaths with Adam’s speed?

I was watching this at the gym this morning — moments after whining to the trainer about how stiff and sore my two legs were from yesterdays workout. I’m such a wimp.
