Armless baseball player a hit on field


DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – A high school baseball player in Decatur, Illinois is getting a lot of attention.

Not for his plays on the field, but his plays on the field with no arms.

Myshaun Dozier plays j-v baseball for McArthur High School.

The teen was born with tar syndrome, a defect that causes the radius bone in the arm not to develop.

That has not stopped dozier who plays second base.

The 16-year-old says it was the greatest moment of his life when he made the team.

“I didn’t think I was going to make the team because a little scrub like me, making the team and all of that it was really, it was really one of my greatest moments in my life you know what I’m saying so I’m really going to take this as an opportunity to show people that not only me, but people like me can do something like this,” said Dozier.

Dozier is like any other player on the team. He suits up and gives it his all out on the field.
