Jack was born with just a thumb on one hand, but thanks to the nonprofit group e-NABLE and Siena, he now has an awesome new Iron Man-inspired prosthetic for his hand, according to The Sporting News.

To make the day even more amazing, Carder, who is a big sports fan, got to use his new, 3D-printed prosthetic to toss out the first pitch at the Clippers game.
