Colorado, you strange. Although it's good that they've got their priorities in order: it may be snowing in the middle of May, but the grounds crew will be damned if Mother Nature screws up the consistency of their infield dirt!

Tom Willis is a 50-year-old Kansas City Royals fan who was born without arms. But he wasn't going to let a silly thing like that stop him from throwing out the first pitch at a Royals game against the Minnesota Twins. Not only that, his first pitch was 10 times better than the dinker that 50 Cent threw back in May.

For comparison:

To give you a frame of reference:

"Any drive over 400 feet is noteworthy. A blow of 450 feet shows exceptional power, as the majority of major league players are unable to hit a ball that far. Anything in the 500-foot range is genuinely historic."

And anything over 600 feet is a lie made by old-timey strongmen, print journalists, and radio announcers before home run distance was tracked as a statistic.

Surprisingly, Stanton didn't even make it to the final round, where Oakland A's OF Yoenis Cespedes claimed the Derby crown for the second year in a row.
