Keenan Briggs was born without a left hand, but that doesn't seem to have had a negative impact on the 11-year-old's baseball career. He's a Kentucky Little League All-Star who, per USA Today, has "always been a talented contact hitter." And on Saturday, he hit a home run in his district's All-Star tournament. The two-run homer went out of the park, helping Briggs' team win the game. "It felt great," he told the Bowling Green Daily News. "Once I hit it, I just knew it was going. It was amazing."
