‘Unbelievable’ sportsmanship in softball game

That’s the definition of sportsmanship. On a technicality, they could have forced the opposing coach into a decision to sub a player and only make it a single. But she hit the home run. She deserved the home run.

Good stuff. Play hard, but play fair; and sometimes fairness isn’t the letter of the law (rules).

More people in business should play (compete) this way.

    I read about that. I’d like to think that kind of stuff would be common, should the opportunity arise, at the college or high school level. Not so much at the professional level where a player might get fired for doing that, but even then, there’s got to be at least one player on every team that would do it without hesitation.

    I just remembered when I used to play soccer back in the day. There was one occasion where my team would have had to forfeit because we didn’t have enough players, so the other team loaned us a couple. One of the opposing team’s players scored two goals for us to win the game.
