When Sports Get It Right

Often in America, we get sports all wrong. Here are two instances in which players, coaches, and fans all got it right.

  • Last spring, senior softball player Sara Tucholsky, who had never hit a homerun in her entire career, finally knocked one over the fence for her Western Oregon team. In her excitement, however, she missed first base and when pivoting to go back and touch it tore her ACL. She couldn't even crawl around the bases. Any help from her team would result in an out. If she could crawl back to first, her team could put in a pinch runner but the only homerun of her life would go down as a single. What happenned? Find out in this article, also from ESPN: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/columns/story?id=3372631.
