Meet Tommy Morrissey - the one-armed child sports star, who just hit a game-winning home run

WHAT AN inspiration.

Tommy Morrissey was born missing most of his right arm.

He rose to popularity when he appeared on the Ellen show when he was just three-years old, and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

He was seen as a golfing prodigy by the world after his appearance on Ellen, and has used his fame and popularity for the benefit of others in a similar situation to himself.

He is an ambassador for the foundation UnLimbited, and spends his time advocating for limb saving and correction treatments for children and hopes that one day, no child will have to lose their arms or legs as a result of a lack of awareness of alternative treatments or financial resources.

And while it's easy to be impressed by his magnificent golf skills, he has also recently shown that he is just as talented when it comes to baseball.

Now 10 years of age, he recently scored the winning home run for his baseball team, saying: "Score is tied 9-9 with two outs in the last inning. I took a ball and a strike....it’s a 1-1 count on me. I felt tons of pressure. The team we were playing is undefeated. Kept my eye on the ball and connected for a 2 run walkoff homerun.

"Baseball life is a good life win or lose!"

Footage of the moment, which can be seen below, is being shared and viewed widely on social media.

What a moment.
