Sometimes, the best examples of sportsmanship come from little leaguers.
With a spot in the Little League World Series on the line in Tuesday’s Southwest Region Championship, Kaiden Shelton of Pearland, Texas threw a pitch that hit Tulsa’s Isaiah Jarvis on the ear flap of his helmet. Jarvis hit the ground in a heap, clutching his head.
After Jarvis dusted himself up and trotted down to first base, seemingly OK, he realized that Shelton was shaken up. On a whim, Jarvis called for time and beelined toward the mound, giving Shelton a hug and offering words of encouragement:
“Hey, you’re doing just great,” Jarvis told Shelton before leaving the mound.
Jarvis spurred the rest of Pearland’s infield to descend upon the mound, consoling Shelton as well.
