True Sportsmanship
During the spring season of 2008, Sara Tucholsky, of Western Oregon University, did something she had never done before, in high school or college. She hit a blast over the center-field fence for her first homerun.

But, during her run around the bases, she 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. Then, opposing players of the Central Washington University softball team stunned spectators by helping Sara fulfill her dream.
