This is a video from the Southwest Regional Little League Championship in Oklahoma where Texas East pitcher Kaiden “Bubs” Shelton accidentally hits Oklahoma batter Isaiah “Zay” Jarvi in the head with a wild pitch. Zay proceeds to first base when he spots Bubs, clearly shaken up and on the verge of tears, and heads to the mound to console him. Now there’s sportsmanship, and then there’s this next-level of being human/human being. Maybe there’s hope for the future yet. Also, do I have to play Little League to get a cool nickname? Because I can shave and act like I’m 12 no problem. It’s like second nature. First nature even.
"Hey, you're doing just great"
