Courageous veteran, amputee tries out for Tigers
from Detroit Tigers
Daniel Jacobs tried out with the Detroit Tigers organization, wearing high socks, one ankle simply a little thinner than the other, but moving around like any other ballplayer, on his own, as player No. 301. In a camp full of long shots, his was among the longest, trying out at age 29. But for an Iraq war veteran and amputee to get this far, long shots don't mean much to him.
