You guys may have seen this one, but it's worth posting for those that haven't seen it. The pitcher (who's close friends with the batter) strikes out the batter to win the game, and then instead of immediately celebrating with his teammates, he went over to the batter and gave him a heartfelt hug. It's great to see such solid thoughtful behavior from a young athlete, this is the example other young athletes need to mimic. The pitcher said he wanted his friend to know that their friendship was more important than a game. It's so refreshing to see sportsmanship take center stage, lets hope it starts a trend.
