(Video) Blind Teenager Throws Perfect Strike On Ceremonial First Pitch

That is awesome. From vlogger seeitourway:

FBC Throws 1st Pitch at Game 4 of the 2011 NLDS between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers on Oct. 5. FBC graduate Max Ashton throws a perfect strike to get the crowd excited as the D-backs swept the Milwaukee Brewers at home to force a do-or-die Game 5 in Milwaukee on Oct. 7.

Bravo, Max. FBC stands for Foundation for Blind Children, an organization based in Phoenix, AZ, whose mission statement is, “The mission of the Foundation for Blind Children is to help blind and visually impaired children, adults and their families lead lives of independence and dignity through mastery of their environment. This will be accomplished through education, training, counseling, communication and technology.” If the inspiring performance on the mound by Max Ashton is any indication, FBC is doing a phenomenal job of accomplishing their goals.

What he accomplished kind of makes the litany of Ceremonial First Pitch Fails over the years appear even more pathetic, does it not?
