Western Oregon & Central Washington were playing for the Division 2 Softball Title.

A player from the Oregon team hit a HR, but blew her knee out and couldn't run the bases, so 2 players from the opposing Washington team carried her around the bases so she could score.

Here's the story:
Softball Team Helps Opposing Team Win Game

This is one of the best examples of good sportsmanship I have ever seen.

That's really terrific! I hope my own daughter is as generous when she's older.

This was a great story! The parents and coaches of those girls should be very proud! I was a softball coach for many years and have never seen sportsmanship like that!

That was all over the news here in the NW. It was awesome to see such sportsmanship.

Fabulous story. Kind of restores your faith in humankind a little bit, doesn't it?
