Imagine defying the odds to become a successful Major League Baseball pitcher. Few athletes ever get the opportunity to even compete at the highest level their sport provides let alone thrive there. This special athlete did just that. Over the course of a 10-year career he won 87 career games posted a fine 4.25 career ERA and even threw a no-hitter in 1993. Whats even more amazing he did it despite being born with only one hand! Jim Abbott originally taken 8th overall in the first round of the 1988 draft by the California Angels also spent time with the Yankees White Sox and Brewers. He defied all odds to excel at his craft and is a must-have collectible for all historians of the game. This ball commemorates Abbott's finest achievement as a professional pitcher. On September 4 1993 Abbott threw a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians completing one of the most improbable feats in all of professional sports. Abbott has hand signed this MLB Baseball, and added the inscription "NH 9-4-93". This ball comes complete with a Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity
