If my players ever pulled this stunt they’re getting benched immediately then running poles for hours after the game. This generation is #charminultrasoft
SB Nation – A scary play turned into a touching moment at the 2022 Little League World Series on Tuesday afternoon in the Southwest Region championship game between Texas East and Oklahoma. There might not be a better example of sportsmanship this year.
Oklahoma hitter Isaiah “Zay” Jarvis was hit in the head with a pitch from Kaiden Shelton of Texas East in the first inning with two runners on. The pitch appeared hit him in the earflap, and knocked his helmet straight off his head. After several moments on the ground, the Jarvis took first base. Then he called timeout and walked over to the pitcher, who was clearly struggling after hitting his opponent in the head.
The two embraced on the mound before other Texas East teammates joined in to comfort Shelton.
