When you're having a bad day, think about Tom and how psyched he is to

just about everyone.

We love Tom's spirit and devotion for the tour.  Because of him, awareness
of the capabilities possessed by those with disabilities will be widespread in
the months and years to come.

To see him go out there without arms and use his foot and throw a strike
from the pitching rubber was really something.  Players in both dugouts
gave him a round of applause because they understood what a remarkable
feat that was.

I saw you on the Dodgers pregame tonight.  Wow!  What an inspiration you are.  I showed my kids and
talked with them how you are a true hero and example of courage.  I am proud of you.  
How great of an
example and role model you are.

first pitch and getting to personally thank you was such a pleasure!  
You are a gentle giant!  - Stadium

It was very nice meeting you at yesterday's game (Cleveland).  It was a real life changing experience for
me to have been in your presence.  It is extremely inspiring to see you adapted to living with a disability
and enjoy life to the fullest.  
I am very proud of you for raising awareness for people with disabilities.  
Keep spreading the message.

You are a true inspiration and, in my mind, nothing short of a hero.  I am a junior in high school and
recently learned about you, your achievements, and your MLB first pitch tour.  The messages you teach
and promote had an enormous impact on me.  I appreciate your willpower, strength, and determination.
