Olathe boy will be in a Nike commercial aired during the London Olympics

Olathe's Nate Muehe, 13, is Nike's TV pitchman.

Last summer, 13-year-old Nate Muehe threw a perfect four-inning game on 19 pitches for his Little League team. That would be neat by itself, but it's remarkable given that he was born without a left hand. This summer, Muehe is going to be seen by millions of people in a Nike commercial aired during tonight's London Olympics opening ceremony.

Local sports blogger Greg Hall reports that Muehe and his family went to Los Angeles in June to shoot the 17-second spot. And, he writes, the uniform Muehe is wearing is a generic baseball uniform rather than his own, and his teammates seen with him aren't really his. But, the inspiration remains perfectly intact.
