True story of great sportsmanship in action

Anyone who’s ever played a sport has heard the expression, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.” A lovely sentiment, but not one that every young athlete truly takes to heart.

But this movie, The Home Run, (don’t worry, it’s only 7 minutes long) depicts an amazing, true story of sportsmanship and courage that beautifully illustrates how it really is how you play the game that matters most.

If you’ve got a child who’s competing in sports, you played yourself, or you just want a great story, don’t miss this. And if you’re a coach, send it to everyone on your team–and to the other coaches as well.

A warning: this is a real tear-jerker, so grab some Kleenex before you settle in. And be sure to watch all the way to the end.

In case you missed it, here’s the link again.

    That video is truly what sportsmanship should be about. I wish everyone in life would take lessons from what the opposing team did for her! Thank you for sharing it!

Whatcha think?
