St. Petersburg, Florida -- It was a special day at the park for Ireland Nugent. She got to throw out the first pitch at Sunday's Tampa Bay Rays game.

The 3-year-old girl lost both of her feet after a lawn mowing accident last year. She's been working with different doctors to get perfect-fitting prosthetics.

Ireland's parents are hoping that the young girl will be ready to start school next fall.
