Nicky Dawson was born with a cataract in her right eye. It had to be removed, resulting in blindness. However, being legally blind hasn’t stopped the young lady from being the second baseman for the Baylor University softball team. She learned how to compensate for the disability; Dawson doesn’t just play, she excels on the diamond!
“You think about the softball athletes around the country that can’t play at a low level,” said Baylor coach Glenn Moore. “She’s handicapped in that way and still plays at a very high level. It’s nothing short of phenomenal that she can do what she’s able to do.”
