6-year-old T-ball player has one arm, plenty of courage

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Six-year-old Riley Rhoden, who plays outfield and second base, is just like his teammates on the Braves, a T-ball team in the Pearland Little League.

As Riley puts it, he loves baseball so much he would play until its dark.

What separates Riley from his teammates is that he plays the game with one arm.  Riley lost his left arm four years ago because of a rare form of cancer. So rare, only 150 people have ever been diagnosed with it.

What Riley's parents found out quickly about their son is he also has a rare form of courage.
