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.
