MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – It was right down the middle.

Nine-year-old Gabe Davis, who doesn’t have legs, got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Thursday’s Myrtle Beach Pelicans game.

The Cleveland, Ohio native was in town with his family for his brother’s baseball tournament. On Wednesday night, he found out he’d get the chance to put one across the plate.

What did he do after throwing a strike? The young Davis did a handstand, and then met the team and got autographs.
