 A tornado victim who lost her legs when a tornado hit Henryville, Indiana was in Louisville Tuesday night to throw out the first pitch during the Wildcats and Cardinals game.
 Stephanie Decker, a Frankfort, Kentucky native, climbed on top of her children when the tornado hit and a beam fell on her. Doctors had to take both of her legs but she saved her family.
 She said she was nervous to throw out the pitch.
 "Sports has always been part of my life, and if you didn't get the butterflies before you went out to a game, I don't think you cared enough about the game," said Decker. "And it's something about going out into a sports facility that gets my adrenaline going, my nerves going a little bit, you know? Plus, I haven't pitched in a long time. Mine was always softball, and it was underhanded, so this is baseball, and it's overhand. But it was fun."
