Sara Tucholsky home run

posted by Jason Kottke   May 01, 2008

When Western Oregon senior Sara Tucholsky hit her first career home run in one of the last games of the softball season, something odd happened. She missed the bag at first and when she doubled back to touch it, her knee gave out. Her teammates were unable to help her around the bases so it looked like her only career home run would turn into a single. Then a member of the other team, a senior with knee problems of her own, said:

Excuse me, would it be OK if we carried her around and she touched each bag?

Update: Here’s an overwrought, overproduced video of the home run and its aftermath. (thx, tim)
