Setting the scene
Dateline: somewhere in the middle of the state of Washington
The scene: an obscure girls' softball game
The situation: A senior playing the last game of her high school career hits her first-ever home run. But something goes terribly wrong as she rounds first base and collapses.
The triumph of character
Sometimes character just bubbles to the surface and turns the tide, just when a situation seems hopeless.
I dare you not to be moved by this inspiring example of sportsmanship and kindness on the part of the opposing team. The video below is only six minutes long.
