Marine Sean McCulloch was viciously attacked and stabbed by another man outside a Galveston bar. According to click2Houston, he almost died that night and ended up with 38 staples in his neck and nerve damage to his arm that's so bad, doctors said it might take up to four years to regain full use.

But that didn't stop McClloch from throwing out the first pitch at the Astros game.
