An 8-year-old boy who became the youngest patient to receive a double-hand transplant has left the hospital.



When he was two years old, he developed an infection that required his hands and feet to be amputated.

But on this night, he impressed everyone at Camden Yards with his pitch.

Way to go Zion!
