Zion Harvey, first child to receive double-hand transplant, throws ceremonial pitch

Starter Dylan Bundy gave up just one hit in seven full innings in the Orioles' 5-1 win against the Rangers Tuesday night. MORE: trade deadline 2016 winners and losers But none of the 88 pitches, including 60 strikes, the 6-1, 200-pound righty threw mattered nearly as much as the slow dribbler Zion Harvey lofted from the mound at Camden Yards. A year ago, the nine-year-old became the first pediatric recipient of a bilateral hand transplant. After training for nearly a year to be able to grip and toss a baseball, Harvey hurled one toward center fielder Chad Jones behind the plate, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.  Check him out.  Tonight, Zion Harvey, the first child in the world to undergo a bilateral hand transplant, threw the first pitch.https://t.co/wuk5Qsr90Q— Baltimore Orioles (@Orioles) August 3, 2016Harvey's story has been chronicled thoroughly in several YouTube videos.
