Iraq War Veteran Tries Out For The Los Angeles Dodgers — With Only One Leg!

| Filed under: InspirationBaseball

Talk about following your dreams at any cost!!

Iraq war veteran Daniel 'Doc' Jacobs has realized a long-time dream of his, and has tried out for the Dodgers. This heart warming talk has a special circumstance, though, as Doc lost part of his leg in an explosion while serving.

Awesomely, regardless of his amputation, he was encouraged to attend by Hall of Famer and former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda — it was an honor for himto try out for the Dodgers, something we're sure was much easier than the 50 surgeries he's had to go through since the IED blast.

While he might not have made the team, he DID throw out a ceremonial first ball before the Dodgers beat the Los Angeles Angels!

Amazeballs, Doc!
