Tuesday night's ceremonial first pitch at Camden Yards was in no way an ordinary first pitch.
It came courtesy of Zion Harvey, a 9-year-old from from Owings Mills, Maryland, who became the first child in the world to undergo a bilateral hand transplant last summer at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, according to an Orioles media release.
The team snapped some nice photos of Zion prior to the game.
