Below is a link about a great tale of sportsmanship in College Sports. It involves a Division II women's softball game in which two members of the fielding team stepped up to help the batter after she hit her first career home run in what turns out to be her last game. The trip around the bases takes an unexpected twist. There are too many places where the actions of the fielders and the reactions of those rooting for the fielders would very likely have been different. That is unfortunate because their small act of courage in doing the right thing shows us what sports is all about.
