Ed Lucas was 12 years old when a baseball accident left him completely blind in 1951, but he did not let that ruin his love for the game. Lucas went on to become a legendary sports journalist covering the New York Yankees and stunning his peers by his ability to know where a ball was hit based on the sound of the bat. Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist remembers a life well lived.
