Major league baseball pitcher Antonio Alfonseca has six fingers on each hand, but he claims the extra fingers don't affect his pitching because they don't usually touch the ball. In most cases of polydactylism (extra fingers or toes), the extra digit has only limited mobility, or can't be moved at all, and is often surgically removed shortly after birth. The condition is reported in about one child in every 500.
