Pitcher Strikes Out Friend, Consoles Him As Team Celebrates
This is what good sportsmanship looks like.
A Minnesota high school baseball player struck out a childhood friend during a recent playoff game. Instead of rushing to celebrate the victory with his teammates, the pitcher ran to his friend to console him and congratulate him on a good game.
The two athletes grew up and played little league together. Pitcher Ty Koehn and Batter Jack Kocon said it was difficult when they ended up going to different schools. Even harder to play against each other with Monday's game on the line. Clearly, the friendship means a lot to both of them. They chose to congratulate each other for a good game before rejoining their teammates.
Ya can't beat best friends.
