Landis Sims Defies All Odds to Make His High School Baseball Team
There are many things that Landis Sims, born with no hands or feet, has been told he shouldn’t be able to do. At the top of that list is being able to play baseball at the high school level. Sims’ response, “Watch me.”
In this episode of the Greater Than The Game Podcast with Sims, we talk about his childhood and the adaptations that made him successful both on and off the diamond. We also discuss his documentary, “Watch Me” and what it’s like to be the subject of a documentary at such a young age. Sims talks about how the organization, Challenged Athlete Foundation, helped improve his performance on the field and has helped change the lives of thousands of people with special needs.
Being Greater Than The Game
Sims also speaks on how he approaches the game mentally and the mindset he has when dealing with a sport where failure is more prevalent than success. We also talk about the relationships he’s built with Major League Baseball players and what those relationships have taught him about the game and life.
Sims discusses how the act of playing high school baseball has an impact on others that goes way beyond the game and how his athletic career can help impact athletes for years to come.
