Watch this Little Leaguer, born with one hand, hit a monster home run

Eleven-year-old Keenan Briggs was born with a congenital upper limb difference that resulted in his left arm stopping just past his elbow. That doesn't make too much difference to him as a ballplayer, though - he made the Warren County South All-Star team this year (that's in Kentucky), and according to the Bowling Green Daily News, he went 4-for-9 in the district tournament, with a double and a home run.  

Yeah, a home run:

From the Bowling Green Daily News:

Finding that right power to hit one over the fences was a feat Keenan thought would take a few more years of growth and development. Even his parents didn't know he had that much power in his swing.

"I thought it would be a few years from now," Keenan said. "I've always wanted to know what it felt like to run the bases. It felt amazing to jog instead of run."
