10-year-old boy signed as Yankee for a day

A young boy from Indiana got to live out his dream of becoming a professional baseball player.



Landis Sims, 10, signed a real contract Monday and became a New York Yankee for the day.



Sims was born with congenital limb differences and does not have hands or feet.



"Landis is more about wanting to show kids what he can do, he's not about complaining," says his mother, Amanda Haag.



Sims was able to take batting practice and even had lunch with Alex Rodriguez.
