Dawson Batts can do it all.

The 12-year-old pitches and plays first base for his youth squad in North Carolina. He's the best player on his tournament team, and as his father told MLB.com, he turned three unassisted triple plays this year. Dawson, whose last name is ideally suited for baseball, recently participated in the prestigious National Youth Baseball Championships in New York.

And did we mention he only has one arm? Born without a left arm, Dawson started hitting off a tee at age 3. Nine years later, the rising eighth grader is one of the best young players in his region.

Here's a video of him participating at the NYBC:

As baseball fans will point out, there is some precedent for what Batts is doing. Jim Abbott, who pitched for 10 seasons in MLB and even threw a no-hitter in 1993, was born without a right hand.
