A Lesson in Losing for All of Us [VIDEO]
Your children’s baseball and softball season(s) have no doubt arrived, and the above is a great video to show them about sportsmanship. The young woman being carried around the bases (Kara Oberer of Eckerd College) has just hit a home run to give her team the lead in the game’s final inning. After hitting it, Kara’s right knee locked up, making it impossible for her to make it home. Despite giving up the home run, Florida Southern pitcher Chelsea Oglevie and teammate Leah Pemberton made sure Kara was able to circle the bases.
I’ve played tons of baseball and softball games in my life, and I’d hope my opponents would have been so kind. Then again, I’d need to have hit a home run first.
