In 2017, the internet was tittering about 14-year-old Luke Terry because of this video:
Big shout out to cornersville's middle school catcher. With the use of one arm, this guy is getting it done. What a stud. pic.twitter.com/4rhPycFGyY— Travis Holland (@tholland25) April 13, 2017
And because only good things happen when the internet finds something, the Orioles invited Terry to Camden Yards to hang out with some players before the game and catch the first pitch from Hall of Famer Jim Palmer.
He also got to throw a few balls around the infield:
The idea came from Orioles bench coach John Russell, who saw Terry’s video floating around the internet and got him in. Kudos to Russell for the idea, and Kudos to Terry, who remains a complete and total badass.
Update: Apparently the internet rediscovered Terry this weekend, and there is a new video of his badassery. We would be remiss if we did not share it.
This is absolutely amazing. This is my buddy’s son up to bat but please watch the catcher. Let’s make this guy known! pic.twitter.com/M6goz7VYa1— Tony Austin ⚾™ (@TonyAustin_10) April 1, 2018
The best part is Terry reminding the runner at third that he’ll pick him off, just give him that chance, sucker, just give him that chance. It’s not like this video confirms anything we didn’t know. But if you’re in the mood to watch more personified determination, here you go. It’s always welcome.
