High School Sports
Adam Bender, 8, was one of several kids who played catcher in Southeastern's rookie league at Veterans Park. Adam played one of the toughest positions on the field with only one leg. He was diagnosed with cancer as a 1-year-old and his left leg was amputated. Adam didn't use a prosthesis, and only used crutches when he reached base for the Astros.
