It is a clear summer night at Fenway Park in Boston The Boston Red Sox and the California Angels are in a hot pennant race The Boston Red Sox are the best hitting team in the American League The Angels need a win and are counting on their rookie pitcher The old green stadium is overflowing with die-hard Red Sox fans as the rookie takes the mound He has to concentrate on tonights game and ignore the crowd The game advanced with no trouble for the rookieIn the end he gave up four harmless hits and most importantly no runs When he got the final man out giving his team a 4-0 victory he starts to walk off the mound All over Fenway Park not only Angel fans but Red Sox fans stood and applauded cheering the rookie off the field Everyone knew that they had seen someone very special This person was Jim AbbottJim Abbott has led an eventfully life He brought his college team to the championship in 1985 brought Team USA to gold in 1988 and threw a no hitter against the Cleveland Indians in 1993 These achievements are not what make him so special what makes Jim Abbott even more remarkable is that he only has one handAs a child Jims parents always told him that he could do anything he wanted to do They knew that their son loved sports They hoped that Jim would play soccer which didnt require the use of hands but right from the very beginning Jim loved baseball So Jims parents bought him a baseball glove However Jim was not just involved in baseball He was the top scorer in his schools intramural basketball league and played two years of varsity football Jims various athletic exploits resulted in press attentionWhen Jim got to college he picked up right where he had left off in high school His two main goals were to get an education
