    'Unbelievable' sportsmanship in softball game
    CWU players carry WOU player around bases after knee injury following HR

    PORTLAND, Ore. - With two runners on base and a strike against her, Sara Tucholsky of Western Oregon University uncorked her best swing and did something she had never done, in high school or college. Her first home run cleared the center-field fence.

    But it appeared to be the shortest of dreams come true when she missed first base, started back to tag it and collapsed with a knee injury.

    She crawled back to first but could do no more. The first-base coach said she would be called out if her teammates tried to help her. Or, the umpire said, a pinch runner could be called in, and the homer would count as a single.

    Then, members of the Central Washington University softball team stunned spectators by carrying Tucholsky around the bases Saturday so the three-run homer would count — an act that contributed to their own elimination from the playoffs....

    Her home run sent Western Oregon to a 4-2 victory, ending Central Washington’s chances of winning the conference and advancing to the playoffs.

          Are you forgetting that 2 runs still would have scored, had they not carried her, meaning the team on the field still would have lost?

          Or, do you just hate sappy stories?
